  10. confunli (n., pl.) -- The long-suppressed sayings of Confucius written when he was high on rice wine; unlike his publicly-acknowledged works, these reveal him as a real party-loving guy really hot for the chicks. Unfortunately, any even marginal sense of propriety prevents their translation.

    Ex.: I quoted one of the confunli to her, and she gave me a black eye.
