The Chinese online catchphrase "No zuo no die" has been included in the Urban Dictionary, a popular online slang dictionary in the United States, and the news created a buzz among web users, the New Express Daily reported on Friday.

"No zuo no die" is a Chinglish phrase, in which "zuo" is the pinyin spelling of the Chinese word meaning do crazy things, and the other parts are English. The phrase means if you don't do stupid things, they won't come back and bite you in the backside.

Chinglish phrases "you can you up" meaning if you can do it then go and do it and "no can no BB" meaning if you can't do it then don't criticize it, were also included in the dictionary.
