I have to point out that the part of the script of "I like Chinese" where they sing in Chinese is in fact transcribed utterly wrong, and a correct transcription is in fact "Wo ai zhonggou ren - Ni hao ma? Ni hao ma? Zaijian"
Meaning "I love Chinese people - how are you? How are you? See you!"

Now, it's said, please don't shoot me!

I don't think anyone will shoot you here,
although they might attack with a piece of fresh fruit.

If you do speak Chinese (and I well know that in truth
Chinese isn't a single language but consist of regional dialects,
primarily Mandarin in the PRC), perhaps you could
translate the character symbols of the "I Like Chinese"
single (a.k.a. a 45RPM or picture sleeve) appearing on my website.

I'm curious to know if the symbols are recognizable
and add up to anything sensible whatsoever, not being
able to speak the language myself beyond a basic phrase or two.

Try my website and click on 'singles', and scoll down a bit
to see the image (white cover with red letters),
and a second one too (mostly red). Thanks for your time!

I agree with what Sir Michael the Naughty first said. You most likely won't be shot on this site, but you will be attacked by fresh fruit, especially bananas and apples.

Fresh fruit you say? Thank god I memorized how to defend myself against it, although I only know banana (I might for once use that 16 ton weight I've been carrying around)...

I am unable to read your website as "geocities" is blocked by the chinese government (ok, there's a lot of bad homepages on it, but hey, I didn't expect the spanish inquisition)

Sorry to hear that. Please send me a note via email if possible.
In return, I can send small JPG file, and would appreciate
knowing if the characters make any sense.

BTW for those who *can* access it, my python website
has been completely updated with the latest findings
and a new color scheme which I hope is easier to read;
still playing around with the Cascading Style Sheets a bit.
Fun fun fun.

Sorry, didn't know it was loaded. Or maybe it was me that was loaded.
