Yes, it's 问个屁. P -> 屁.

问个屁 means Don't ask!. It indicates that you are annoyed by the questioner. It's a way to block their questions to annoy you any further.

It's a ruder way to say 别问了!


Politely, roughly 'nonsense'. Various less polite Anglo-Saxon expletives may be substituted.

问个屁 Ask/Talk nonsense.

你错了 You are wrong. 错个屁! Wrong my foot!

  • Usually when someone say something like this, s/he generally means "mind your own business" or "back off" after being asked about something upset.

  • Maybe you are right, but for 'mind your own business', wouldn't you prefer: "你问什么问,管好你自己吧!“ 或者 ‘有什么好问的, 管好你自己吧!” Dan is of course right, 问个屁 really tells the person to stop, don't ask, because the question is stupid or annoying or nonsensical.

  • Yeah, but this is a quick way to stop the question. Such meaning is also implied. Correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, the pronunciation of 屁 is pi (4th tone). Very close to the English letter P.


It means:

What are you asking for? This is nonsense.
