Chinese Olympic Team to Wear Tomato Scrambled Egg Uniforms


China’s Olympic Opening Ceremony uniforms were unveiled Thursday. The uniform’s designer, Liu Ruiqi, said: “When the Chinese delegation comes out, they will certainly catch the eyes of the audience.

But many Chinese netizens are not happy. One typical comment is:

It reminds me of the tomato scrambled eggs dish.

There have been some posts praising the uniforms saying that they look good. Usually, there are replies by people accusing those posters of being “wu mao dang.” One funny reply was like: “Wu Mao brother, ugly is ugly, there is no need to ridiculously claim it is good looking.”
