The idea for this post came from a discussion with pretzellogic here:
eg can we say 哥们儿 without sounding weird, getting laughed at? What would be the reception?
..it got me to thinking about what's going to sound unnatural and strange to Chinese ears coming from a laowai?
Thought it would be interesting to create a list if possible of such words/ phrases, as well as discuss where you may or may not get away with it, why, etc.
