小屁屁: the language of a colonist

王建煊消毒:「屁」話只是提醒監委
中時電子報 - 2008年12月8日
監察院長王建煊昨針對「辦大案,別查人民陳情案的小屁屁」發言風波出面澄清。王建煊表示,他從未說過人民陳情案都是「小屁屁」,但監院人力有限,所以「小屁屁」說法是提醒監察委員查案要有輕重緩急,有些屬個人利益的案子先放著,建議應先調查重要案件。

My first wave of anger was not toward 王建煊, it was toward the Taiwanese who voted for Ma, who then nominated 王建煊 for 監察院長. Say I am shallow if you want. I am trembling with anger that we have a foreigner as our 監察院長. I hereby challenge any Taiwanese: have you ever in your life ever said something like 小屁屁? This is not Taiwanese. This is the language of a colonist!
