||Hi! I've read "Sorairo Japan" and the articles really intrigued me. It's really nice to know something about the culture and language.|
But bricks taste bad.(╯‵□′)╯︵┻━┻
Yes they do.(╯°□°)╯︵┻━┻
I do find news articles about a person in India who eat bricks. But China might lack that kind of magic power to summon such a brick-devastator.
And here is my useless Chinese lesson.
Just like Japanese, context is important in Chinese conversation as well. Here's one example.
Zhang “能不能请我吃顿饭？(Would you invite me to a dinner?)”
There's also two interpretation of Li's response.
Li "Sure, I would stuff you mouth with bricks."
Li "No way. I would rather smash your head with bricks."
Thinking about the context, have you ever heard that people commonly eat bricks in China? I’ve heard of a American who only eats wood, but never heard that bricks is popular food in China. Well, Chinese people are famous(or infamous) of their variety of foodstuff, ranging from little bugs to huge sharks. There could be one day they will develop sauteed bricks or some bricks kebab. And I believe the popularity would exceed that edible underwear. Therefore, you can guess the answer B would be correct.
(*Well, I really hope I can chomp down that WALL.)
(*We have a popular slang about eating dirt which means you've run out of money.)
(*Bricks made of sugar, chocolate and, well, Tofu do exists nowadays.)
(*so does panties...eh?)
(*Please do not believe the wood-eating Americans thing. No, sir. Some might chew down pencils or trees(American beavers) but, not as food. It's just a random ridiculousness that pops into my mind.)
