Beg to differ
Express your outrage at an umpire’s call by yelling 'What bull!'—'Goushi.'
Call someone an ass
Call someone an ass with a vehement 'Pigu!' The fact that it’s so close to the English word 'pig' is a bonus.
Call them an 'effing asshole
Who doesn’t love to call the opponent an 'effing asshole?' In Chinese, that’s 'Tamade hundan!'
Send them to hell
Tell their fans to go to hell: 'Ni qu si!'
Pull a "Yo Momma"
Pull a 'yo mamma' on them by saying, 'Cao ni da ye.' The literal translation is 'Screw your old uncle,' but for reasons known only to the Chinese, that is just as bad as insulting someone’s dear mother.
Call them a girl
Insult male athletes by asking 'Ni shi nu ren hai shi nan ren?' which means, 'Are you a girl or a man?'
Call them a "loser"
Hope that by the end of the competition you can taunt them with 'Loser!'—'Wunang fei!'
