How odd! I think because I spent time in the nearby city of Qingdao, I just can’t stop hearing Laoshan pronounced as Lao Shan.. two words with pretty equal stress, so Shan is stonger than “tion”/“shun” in lotion.

[Lao→Laow ..rhymes with Ow!.. and Shan→ Sean/Shawn/Shahn]

So now I have the line stuck in my head, plus Cartman from Southpark doing the parody, and both characters sitting around the park at the base of Mt. Lao. Weird!

I guess I need to see the Southpark episode. ;0)
