Now even innocent mooncakes are enlisted in the campaign against Japan:
Tònghèn xiǎo Rìběn 痛恨小日本 ("Detest Little Japan!")
Dǎdǎo xiǎo Rìběn 打倒小日本 ("Down with Little Japan!")
Yǎo sǐ xiǎo Rìběn 咬死小日本 ("Bite Little Japan to Death!")
Gǎn zǒu xiǎo Rìběn 赶走小日本 ("Expel Little Japan!")
The emphasis on "Little Japan" is similar to the use of the pejorative term "Japs". This notion is reinforced by the smallness of the mooncakes. Also, the strange incitement to "Bite Little Japan to Death!" may have been inspired by the morbid thought that, with each bite of a mooncake, patriotic Chinese should imagine that they are biting "Little Japan(ese)".
