My Mandarin is a bit ropey - why exactly is the P&G advert supposed to be offensive (apart from being a crap pun)? It seems to be saying:

1) there's notoriously a lot of tea in China
2) teacups are made of China
3) tea stains teacups
4) our product is really good at removing stains, so even if you've drunk a lot of tea we'll make your teacup clean.

Which bit are they taking offence at...?


Christ knows: their fenqing don't make any more sense than our wingnuts. Maybe they interpreted it as China being a stain which should be removed. It's all anti-semitic pizza to me.
