灌狸猿 (guàn lí yuán): watered weasel ape

Watered weasel ape.

Sounds nearly the same as “administrator” (管理员 guǎnlǐ yuán). The watered weasel ape originally referred to the administrators of Baidu's online encyclopedia, where many mythical creatures, including the grass-mud horse, first appeared. (Entries about these animals were promptly deleted.) Now a watered weasel ape is any Web administrator who censors vulgar or politically sensitive content.
