Sheldon: Why do you have the Chinese character for "soup" tattooed on your right buttock?
Penny: It's not "soup," it's "courage."
Sheldon: No it isn't. But I suppose it does take courage to demonstrate that kind of commitment to soup.
Penny: How'd you see it? You said you wouldn't look.
Sheldon: Sorry. As I told you, the hero always peeks.

You gotta get this, it's a joke - there was that fad with chinese symbols a while back, she went in, ordered "Courage", but the tattooartist drew "Soup" on her...

Hmmmmm, I don't see the connection or the similarity.
Courage: 勇氣
Soup: 湯 But hey, what do I know? Besides, Sheldon studied a lot more Chinese than I did!

What does the chinese character soup and courage look like? I think I found courage and I can see why it might look like soup as it looks like a bowl of hot, steamy, soup on a table stand but what does the character of soup look like.

If I could speak the language of rabbits, they would be amazed and I would be their king... I would be kind to my rabbit subjects... at first.... One day, I hold a great ball for the President of France, but the rabbits don't come. I'm embarrassed so I eat all the lettuce in the world.. and make the rabbits watch.
