Are You Sure That’s Captain America?

3 Sep

August 3, 2017

I was shopping for some clothes for my niece and nephew yesterday. (No, I was not just lurking in the children’s section. I really do have toddlers in my family.) There was a rack of t-shirts and I found this off-model Captain America image.

The sticker says it’s collectible! Buy five of them!

Orange, white and blue? Orange? I’ve been mistaken all these years. That “A” on his forehead isn’t for America, it’s for Auburn University!

There. Fixed it for you.

P.S.: I bought the shirt anyway.

The Chinese French Fry Theory

26 Aug

August 26, 2017

This theory, like many others, began with my Dad but it was quickly adopted by me and for years I lived by its simple precept: 

Never buy food from a Chinese restaurant that serves French fries

It makes sense. It really does. 

  • If someone goes to a Chinese restaurant and orders French fries, it stands to reason that they are not big fans of Chinese food.
  • If enough people go to a Chinese restaurant and order French fries that the restaurant puts it on the menu, it stands to reason that most of their customers do not know much about Chinese food.
  • If most of a Chinese restaurant’s customers would rather order French fries than fried rice, it stands to reason that the restaurant has no incentive to cook really good Chinese food.

So in other words, French fries on a Chinese menu are an indication that the Chinese food isn’t too good. 

Ditto with chicken wings. 

Chicken wings with French fries is NOT a Chinese dish!
