This case is actually a weapon against artificial intelligences that are unable to deal with paradoxes.

Ah, the mysteries of Engrish. OK, so this pencil case was found in CHINA? As in Mainland China? The PRC? The pencil case was clearly manufactured by a Japanese company for Japanese consumers. Although it’s hard to read, it looks like the pictured character’s name is: “Ducknosuke”. Or, a misspelled “Dachnosuke? The ending “…-nosuke” is a very VERY common male Japanese personal name (i.e., first name, not surname), meaning “Helper Of….(blank).” Second, that little pink blob over the duck’s head, is how Japanese people typically draw/paint an Octopus.

Except in Chinese it’s pronounced kah-lah-oh-kay.
Literally.

Your question mystifies me.
Why would the Chinese NOT have karaoke?

And as I’m sure you know, Pinoys & Pinays can’t live without Karaoke.
It’s just NOT a party for Filipinos if there’s no Karaoke.

@Pete. My range is in the Paul Robeson – Johnny Cash key.

So! I did a rendition of Joe Hill. One, they were mystified as to what it was about, and two I nearly blew the bass speakers out of their karaoke machine.
They never asked me again.🙉
