Tǒngjī Jú 捅鸡局

Pejorative, homophonous nickname for the National Bureau of Statistics (统计局 Tǒngjì Jú), long criticized for providing unreliable data. When last checked on January 28, 2015, “Bureau of Dicking Around” was blocked from search results on Sina Weibo.

In a post in made in January 2012, Sina blogger Tan Haishi poked fun at the bureau for making the usual far fetched claims about economic development:

National Bureau of Dicking Around Reports 2011 “Chicken Butt” Increased 9.2% from Previous Year~Haha~~

国家捅鸡局报告,2011年“鸡滴屁”比上年增长9.2%,很鼓舞人心啊~~哈哈~~

“Chicken butt” is GDP (鸡滴屁 jī dī pì).
