I haven't drunk Tsingtao Beer, you did.
Elder Brother Wu is absolutely not weak, on the contrary, ...
You are really a funny and brash young man.
I know it doesn't feel good to be wrong about something but that's the only way to learn.
Mr. Zhao is a good translator and yet you notice how humble he is in his demeanor.
In contrast, I tried to give you face and yet you persist in being brash and unreasonable.
You are wrong in both counts on Wu Da Lang and Mu Guiying.
Wu Da Lang is a well-known symbol of weakness and this has nothing to do with his short stature.
Your comment here that he won his wife Pan Jinlian as a gift by his former employer is laughable.
Pan Jinlian was trying to resist unwanted advances from her previous boss whose wife was mighty jealous of the attention heaped on her by the husband, and wouldn't allow her to stay in her household.
The rejected husband feared his wife and therefore chose Wu Da Lang for Pan as a form of punishment on Pan for her rejection.
So throughout history people laughed at Wu Da Lang because he allowed his life to be run by someone else.
The Mu Guiying you are referring to is not the same person as the well known female general depicted in the Peking Opera.
If you still don't believe me, go to wikipedia and type in her name Mu Guiying, and you will find the following on her:
Mu Guiying (穆桂英) is a legendary heroine from ancient China's Northern Song Dynasty and a prominent figure in the Generals of the Yang Family legends. She is the wife of Yang Zongbao and mother of Yang Wenguang. Brave, resolute and loyal, Mu is the cultural symbol of a steadfast woman.
Mu Guiying practiced martial arts from a young age after her bandit father Mu Yu (穆羽) who ruled the Muke Fortress (穆柯寨). One day Yang Zongbao, the youngest warrior of the illustrious Yang clan, came to the fortress demanding the Dragon-Taming Wood (降龍木) on the order of his father, Marshall Yang Yanzhao. Mu refused so they fought in a duel which resulted in Yang Zongbao being captured. While Yang Zongbao refused to surrender and demanded death, Mu found herself attracted to her prisoner and boldly made a marriage proposal, which Yang Zongbao eventually accepted. After Yang Zongbao returned and reported the events, an infuriated Yang Yanzhao ordered the disgraced son executed. To save Yang Zongbao, Mu came out of the fortress and engaged in a battle with Yang Yanzhao, also capturing him. Mu apologized to her future father-in-law and finally Yang Yanzhao agreed to the marriage and welcomed Mu to his family and troops.
Mu played a huge part in the following battle against the Khitan forces, especially in breaking their previously unstoppable Heavenly Gate Formation (天門陣).
Mu Guiying had 2 children with Yang Zongbao, son Yang Wenguang and daughter Yang Jinhua.
I tried very hard to give you face but you don't seem to be the kind of person who accepts courtesy, and simply need to have the last word.
Please don't pretend to understand Chinese folklore or characters in novels when you obviously don't.
