That Explains

...A Lot

While reading one of my Chinese language book last night (FYI, that was the only available, non-read book on my night stand and I didn’t feel like getting up!!!) I came upon an interesting fact: Chinese language doesn’t have a word to say “Logic” or “Humor”. They have to use a phonetic transcription LuoJiXue (luo2 ji4 xue2 - 逻辑学) for logic and YouMo (you1 mo4 – 幽默) for humor. Now it’s all becoming clear.
