“chinese, japanese, dirty knees, look at these”… what does it mean and why do kids know it?
When I was little, this rhyme was done with hand gestures you took your hands and put them on your eyes and slanted them up and down, for the chinese japanese, you put your hands on your knees for dirty knees, then you pulled the front of your shirt out ( like you had breasts). I think we giggled alot after that. Kids have alot of stupid rhymes for jump rope and clapping games on the playground. At least we did, I would guess kids still do. I never thought it was a put down to anyone just fun.
