屌丝 diǎosī

Since: 2012

Origin: Chinese web

Meaning: Loser.

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 !
