正腐 (zhèngfǔ) govern-rot

Tearing the “rot” out of “government.” (Wang Jing and Xie Hui)

Homophonous with “government” (政府), but the characters can mean “totally rotten” or “completely corrupt.” Blocked from Weibo search results as of September 10, 2014.

Example: Deleted Weibo post captured by FreeWeibo:

麦穗佛: May I ask, those huge sums of money that govern-rot officials collect for dog registration fees, where do they get used?! (September 4, 2014)

请问正腐官员收取的巨额犬只管理费都用在了什么地方?! [Source]
