I gotta know, it's bothered me for a long time:
Exactly how many chins ARE in a chinese phone book?
Isn't Chang the most common surname?
How Long is a Chinaman's name.
Books have chins??? If they are fat, do they therefore have DOUBLE CHINS?
Why are you retreating from our convo, Luci?
This baffles me.
Another question for tiff
If you ring up wing do you get a wong number?
Wrong. Just wrong. Funny, but wrong.
Aha...don't worry, I will answer all your questions:
1. I don't know how many Chins there are in a Chinese phone book; This is because i'm pretty sure chinese people dont have phone books in the traditional sense. There are 1.3 billion of them and they aren't so down on landlines.
2. And no, if you ring up wing...you get a long number.
My favorite Chinglish expression, and FYI to all you bleeding hearts...CHINESE kids learning English call it that...is Delishors.
Chinese kids say "Delishors" instead of "Delicious"...so one of my teacher friends here at the end of each lesson goes:
"Remember kids!! There is no R in DELICIOUS!"...I dunno...I guess you kinda have to be here for it to be the full extent of hilarious.
My very heart bleeds with offendedness!!!!
Well geesh...not the response I was really looking for...:/
I'll give somebody an egg roll if they boost my karma up a bit (wink wink)
(Psst...they don't have egg rolls...at least not in this part of China...i'll have to pick some up when I get home)
How Wrong is a Chinaman's name?
I have no idea...
But i'm good friends with a guy named Ling Hong Tao (seriously) so maybe i'll ask him.
My daddy used to say....
Eat jerry bean fol runch falt in technicorol.
Wor boo ming bai...
Dway boo shee...
I doubt you are even in China. I would bet you are in Edmonton's Chinatown. Natch. No Canadian would ever seek to visit China. Not when we have the largest Chink population in the world outside of China.
I ate at a Panda Express a couple times. They kinda suck.
Ooooh look what I found!
