  • Shows how much you know Sam, we prefer the term "Little People", and the actual translation is bit upon by a little person. Try to get your facts is order before you post a comment next time!

  • Call me ignorant, but doesn't "Taiwanese" mean "Somebody from Taiwan"? Is this just some kind of joke against the Taiwanese? If it is, I don't get it.

  • Is this some kind of expression of humour?I don't see how the words 台灣人 could possibly stand for anything else!

  • Unless I'm mistaken, goat is "山羊", which is no where near "台灣人". Given these words, there is no way Taiwanese could possibly mean 'suckled by goats', unless it means that in another language. Before posting something like this, please be sure that you have your facts straight, or at least be more specific.
