It is a word which describes a poor person of Hobbit seize, a complete Loser. This is the most terrible description one can get on the internet. As it concerns the adjective poor, it really means that car, house or anything else are dreams that will never come true.
But who knows, even Cinderella couldn’t imagine she’ll end up being a Princess on her own 😉 In fact, this is a word usually used to mock one-self and to make fun of oneself on the internet, in front of everybody !
Need to know: The Ministry of Education declared Diǎosī 屌丝 vulgar web language in 2015 (16th October).
In Use: “我是个屌丝” (I’m a loser)
Interesting things: Diǎo 屌 is used to refer to men’s penis. The 14th of November is the Loser’s Day 屌丝节.
