美刺 - a type of praise-and-blame seen as a feature of traditional literature and its exegesis, usually traced back to the Songs of Chu 楚辞 as purportedly written by Qu Yuan of zongzi fame, where it is associated with a social commentary allegorical device known as 美人香草 / 香草美人.

糗事-qiu3shi4 scandal

糗 means dry food 干粮 as a noun  or 面条粘连在一起或饭,粥等凝成糊状 as an adjective, for example, 面条都煮糗了 

This was my first time encountering this character. I was expecting it to be 镍‘s nie4 (Nickel) and 奉为圭臬 pronuciation.But no, gotta keep 'em guessing aye.

I haven't come across 糗 before, but the right hand side and presumably phonetic competent is 臭 chòu (has an extra 点), not 臬 niè.

Thanks a heap! My bad! The pronunciation makes much more sense now. Can't believe I made that rookie.
