Chinese for "fuck your mother". When I was in China last week I mentioned it to our Chinese Trade manager (we have known each other since 2000), and she found it extremely amusing, primarily because of my pathetic pronunciation.

The only Chinese I know is:

Kung Po Chicken, Special Fried Rice and some Prawn crackers please.

How about...Jiang Kai-shek or...Deng Xiaoping? Maybe a bit of Sun Yat-sen?

I'd like to know how to say 'Stay OUT of that square!' or 'Surender all your democracy to us!'

Chiang Kaishek was Japanese.

Nope, he was Chinese. He studied with Japanese military for a while before returning to China. He was in control of the army when the Japanese invaded Manchuria and organised resistance up to the end of World War 2.

That's as much as I know - google the rest ;-)

For being a wannabe-Commie, Caspar, you should know about Chiang Kai-Shek.

He was the leader Mao forced out of China, driving Chiang to Taiwan. There, Chiang set up a National Govt, which in reality was quite a bloody place to live. His wife recently died in NY.

I tend to avoid all the complications of the Chinese language by keeping it simple: Chicken with Broccoli, Pork Fried Rice, Hot and Sour Soup, Egg Roll. On a related note, that is quite possibly the best meal you will ever eat.

This is true, I had General [Insert one of several billion variations of his name]'s chicken the other day. But still, you cannot beat the simplicity of chicken and broccoli. Also, I don't get it when people always criticize the chicken as being cat...all they are proving is that cat is one of the most delicious entrees ever.

Perhaps that is just the secret of American-Chinese chefs!

Have you ever wondered where all the Chinese people who work at all the Chinese restaurants come from? And they all speak Chinese and English too...well, they all speak Chinese...

And don't say "China".

Do they all live in some completely Chinese neighborhood? Is there one of these neighborhoods near every Chinese restaurant? Do enough people who live in these neighborhoods exist to fully staff all the Chinese restaurants during all work hours? I'm sure most of the people who would live in these neighborhoods do NOT work in Chinese restaurants.
