â†µWhile "Sports Make You Health" doesn't work on a grammatical level, you certainly feel the meaning in a general sense. You also probably find jokes about sex funny, because you are breathing, and therefore should enjoy Chinese company Elasun's elegantly base collection of condom ads running in China right now. â†µâ†µ
â†µAs if the double-entendre wasn't going far enough, consider that the Chinese have also started referring to going to the Olympics as "avoiding pregnancy," because the words for "Olympics" sounds something like the words for "contraception," or "beef tallow business suit," depending on the tones. Damn you, tonal languages. You're to blame for me being arrested in Hong Kong that one time. How was I to know the words "bank withdrawal" and "I'm robbing this bank with a bomb strapped to my chest" were one tone apart? Really, people. â†µâ†µ
