腊肉 (làròu): cured meat

The embalmed body of Mao Zedong has been on display at his mausoleum in the center of Tiananmen Square since 1977, where people converge every morning to pay their respects to the communist revolutionary and founding father of the People's Republic of China.

腊肉 (làròu), Chinese for “cured meat” or “bacon,” has been used by netizens to refer to the mummified remains of the chairman, and has become a sensitive word on the Chinese Internet at various times in the past.
