档/裆/挡中央 (Dàng/Dāng/Dàng Zhōngyāng): Party Central Committee

The character “party” (党 dǎng) is replaced by “file” (档 dàng), “crotch” (裆 dāng), or “block” 挡 dǎng. 党 is not used because netizens feel it is a loaded term, and for fear of attracting online censors.

Ai Weiwei holding a grass-mud horse stuffed animal over his crotch. Combining the obscenity “grass-mud horse” and Ai Weiwei’s action (blocking the center of his crotch), this image conveys the meaning, “Fuck you, Party Central Committee!”
This cover of Han Han’s short-lived magazine, Party, suggests the sentence “The Party Central Committee has guns.”
