Ya, Ratcoon, I agree. How many times will smarty-pants commenters like wowokay say, “Lame, would have been effective if spelled or punctuated properly…” YAWN!
Here’s a tip, get over yourselves the rest of us can overlook an abbreviation or mistake here and there. It’s not medical school for crying out loud. So save your comment, no need to state the obvious.
@Mnr Burger: was referring to “resteraunt”
@Ratcoon, Cheerbear: Of course it’s not medical school, but I think spelling lessons are relevant when you’re talking about somebody making fun of foreigners.
Interestingly enough, nobody actually eats cat in Asia. Or Egypt, for that matter.
I have an uncle from China, his name is Uncle Chom-Bok-Fon-Wen. He was visiting us last summer–his first trip to North America. When we talked over the phone and internets, he asked questions about this side of the solar system–which side of the road we drive on, if McDonalds is everything they make it up to be, and whether or not Disneyland was actually operated by Nazis.
Anyways, he also asked about the family. I told him we had a pet cat. He said he loved cats. Now Mr. Tumblesworth (tumbly) was the greatest cat ever. When Chommy came over, we all had a great time, going to museums, explaining to him why communism is bad and how the Western media portrays China as a dirty shithole.
Anyway, besides the fact that Chommy refused to get out of the passing lane (even while going well below the speed limit) and merged without looking/signaling, he was an excellent chef. The night prior to his departure, he offered to make dinner for us all. It was a very delicious stir fry, with the tenderest meat I’ve ever had.
The only bad thing about this whole trip was that Mr. Tumblesworth vanished before Chommy left. Damn I miss that cat.
All these comments are the same, someone will bitch about grammar, someone will bitch about the person bitching, then anonymous gay will write a 2 paragraph entry about how his uncle molested him, like anyone gives a shit
