Slang Dynasty is a series that unpacks the wide world of Chinese regional slang, internet colloquialisms, and assorted street-level jargon.

In a very special Spring Festival edition of Slang Dynasty, Managing Editor Jake NIU-by gives you the rundown on some ways to incorporate the Year of the Ox into your Lunar New Years greetings.
