Two restaurant owners, a Greek and a Chinese had restaurants directly next door to each other. Every moring, as they were opening up, the Greek would call over, "Hey Chan, what you got special today?"

Chan would respond, "Flied lice!", and the Greek would laugh.

Chan didn't think it was funny, and spent hours and hours practicing saying, "fried rice"

Then one morning, when the Greek guy asked what his special was, Chan, with a big smile on his face yelled, loudly, "FRIED RICE, YOU GLEEK PLICK!"

True story. A bunch of us at work ordered Chinese take out. Each order came in one of those white paper tubs, labeled with the order type on the top. The pork fried rice came labeled "PFL," and the shrimp fried rice came labeled "SLFL." We figured that the labels could only mean "pork flied lice" and "slimp flied lice."

Reminds me of the one that was going around during the big Asian financial meltdown a few years back... I won't bother with the setup, the payoff had an American explaining that it was due to "fluctuations in the currency market", to which a Chinese gentleman replied, "Yeah, well, fluck you Americans, too!"

I worked as a pharmacy clerk in college. Right next door was Great Wall Chinese Restaurant. We'd get take out there several times a week and I always be the one sent to get it so the staff got to know me and vice-versa. I got in the habit of always ordering "Roast Dog LoMein" They'd always say "We don't serve dog" to which I'd reply "well then, how's the cat tonight." ... "You velly funny man, you want to eat or no?":D

Like John, I hope this won't cause too much offense to anybody...

Q: What are the first three words of a Chinese food recipe?
A: "Here, kitty, kitty..."
