"How do you say 'I want your money?'"

Mark Zuckerberg amazed an audience at Tsinghua University in Beijing on Wednesday by holding a 30-minute Q&A in fluent Mandarin. The audience let out an audible gasp when he began speaking, which may say more about Americans than Mark Zuckerberg's linguistic skills. They respond to a rich white guy speaking Mandarin the way rich white guys respond to magic tricks. My own Mandarin is limited (I only know "Tsinghua University"), but Zuckerberg's answers certainly sound convincing. He even cracked a few jokes, getting a big laugh from the crowd with a line about his Mandarin being "really terrible." Okay, maybe you had to be there.
