欺实马 (qī shí mǎ): horse of deception

In Chinese, “horse of deception” is a homophone for “70 KPH,” and is a reference to the 70 KPH incident in which a rich second generation ran over another man, killing him, and police maintained he had only been going 70 KPH.

The horse of deception is one of a number of internet mythical creatures. According to its back story, the horse of deception once roamed freely before being trapped in the Well of Commerce (交井) (which sounds the same as “traffic police” (交警) in Chinese) and was sealed in it by centuries of grass-mud horse excrement. It was customary for the rich to cast their money into the well when faced with difficulties. Finally, in May of 2009, the horse of deception burst free once more to cause mischief.
