Shanghai 05.jpg
A little boy hangs up a sign with the Chinese character 'fu' meaning 'happiness' in Shanghai, China, on January 24, 2009. The character is placed on purpose upside down to make a play on words in Chinese between 'upside down' and 'arrived' which are homophenic. Therefore it can be read as 'happiness arrived'.
