It is a common misconception amongst the public that the phrase "a horse going through puberty" originated from an attempt by a Western European who tried to imitate the sound produced by a native Cantonese speaker. However, further investigation suggested that such claim has no grounds, as the Western European was simply trying to say YUSU after an excessive amount of weed was taken.
