A Flamingo Among Chickens
by zheng3, published
Chinese has many set phrases, or <i>chéngyǔ</I>: four-word phrases that communicate a concept quickly to someone who knows the cultural and historical context.
These cocktail sticks are my take on 鹤立鸡群: a crane standing among chickens.
Give the flamingo to your guest of honor, and let everyone else be a chicken.
More on <i>chéngyǔ</I> over at the blog: http://www.zheng3.com/2012/12/27/like-a-flamingo-among-chickens/
