吃不消 Food Inc in China

吃不消 Food Inc

Interesting translation of Food Inc., 吃不消 chībuxiāo means “unable to stand” (as in exhaustion, exertion) made up of individual characters
吃 to eat
不 not or no
消 to consume, use, disappear, remove or spend.

I’m going to guess this is a Chinese “original” as the original Food Inc is not even a book but a documentary (available for download and DVD) — and very much worth watching.
