What Is The Colour Of Spiderman?

A 6 years old Chinese boy in my tour group asked the tour guide today, “What is the colour of Spiderman?”

The tour guide replied, “That’s an easy question. The colours are blue, red and black.”

The boy shooked his head and said, “Wrong, it’s white because Spiderman 是白的 man!”

— For those who do not know Chinese: ‘是白的’ pronounced as ‘shi bai de’ which means ‘is white’. Spiderman sounds like ‘Shi Bai De Man’ in Chinese.
