I'm being very nitpicky with a coworker (20s, first language is mandarin) and I'm trying to tease myself playfully by saying something along the lines of "tomato tomahto" in mandarin.

I'm sure there is a translation for "it's all the same" (my stale interpretation for "tomato tomahto"), but I was hoping for a more playful phrase. Something more comparable to the joke-iness of "tomato tomahto", originated from this song.

How about "半斤八两"? It's not funny though.


How about something like:

  • 哎呀,渣渣辉,张家辉有什么区别嘛?

Not sure if everyone will get it but it's quite funny.
