Chinese Tuesdays: 吃喝嫖赌


吃喝嫖赌抽坑蒙拐骗偷 (chīhēpiáodǔchōukēngmēngguǎipiàntōu) – Eat, drink, whore, gamble, smoke, defraud, deceive, kidnap, cheat, steal. This phrase is used to talk about someone who has bad habits or who is rebellious. Or someone actually guilty of all of the above. It is often shortened to 吃喝嫖赌 (chīhēpiáodǔ), simply to mean "to live a life of dissipation".
