China

true story: just a couple of hours ago there was some toddler having the mother of all tantrums outside my window made even worse by his slightly older brother deciding to score some points by getting into an argument with him about it. anyway the older brother starts calling the younger one a “China” which I thought was odd (rhyming slang? no wait he doesn’t mean it in a nice way) and clearly this also puzzled his parent/carer who eventually asked him what he meant and he proceeded to explain that in China they didn’t let Muslims fast during Ramadan… at which point I thought this is getting too weird and went off to make some more coffee.
