Fuk Wit Me Gringo's Finest Chi-Mex Diner!

Offending foreign cultures for 6 years and counting!

Well, not really. Just having the usual fun of finding spelling errors on Chinese menus. I have to pick my daughter up from work around midnight from her shift at a Chinese place so I figured, what the hell, just post this one up real quick! Made it back in June of 2008 for Alexia. If she's still out there, say hi to me Alexia! Haven't seen you in ages and I hope you are doing ok! Anyway, its just your typical exotic food additive changes the clueless patrons of the establishment, which has been going on for hundreds of years, right?  Ancient Chinese secret huh? We've come a long way in 40 years!

Happy Towel Day to everyone that is a fan of Douglas Adams and his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I leave you with this wonderful 1980's song I used to hear a lot on the Dr. Demento Show.

Life? Don't talk to me about life!


  1. Yeah another HHGTTG FAN
    Every one should know where their towel is

  2. it mad me hungry reading that caption. and happy towel day a shame you could not find a disaster area video.

  3. Lovely cap.
    Honestly, about the last two decades, Chinese restaurants have their menu's better spelled as the locals, at least in the restaurants I visit. Before that it was bad over here as well.

    Wanted to comment sooner, but I've been busy celebrating Towel Day my own way, and I discovered someone put the Hitchhikers Guide BBC TV series from the eighties on You Tube.

    1. At this point in time, I really do wonder if they leave the errors in there on purpose to give people a good chuckle. I need to see the BBC series as I've heard the radio version.

    2. That's possible too, giving the people what they expect is probably a good business strategy. But maybe it is just the younger generation taking over. My favourite Chinese restaurant is one of the oldest in town. when the owner's daughter started to work there, the menu's improved, When she and her husband took the place over, after he retired, even more.
      Well, both speak impeceble Dutch.

      The radio version is up after the TV series. Never had the change to listen to that, and I noticed that is on You Tube as well.
