    When looking at these menus from a three star hotel in the peoples republic of China, I can imagine that 'Western fashion fried rice' is a hugely popular dish amongst the non-Chinese speaking crowds wary of culinary adventures! Dear me, I'd love to get my hands on the translator software that did this. (And put it to work on our artists statement, haha).

    Njoy your 'butter many privates' or your 'Bureau swallows to take the fish idea powder'!

    PS These menus were not digitally manipulated - they are the real thing.

    (Will add two more pages later - the files were too large!)

    that is too funny. It even managed to get hubby out of his black hole of an office to see why I was choking. I laughed so hard I couldn't catch my breath.

    I am really disappointed. They did not have my favorite, Ox penis with tonic. Thess menus prove why I never dine out in China without my hosts.

    Joe,
    If you're looking for you're favorite dish, you need to stay in the five star hotels. Try the TaiYuan World Trade Hotel next time you're in Shanxi. They proudly serve Ox, Deer and Dog penis.

    This is the same place they forced my colleagues and I to quit playing Chinese Chess in the lobby (we were hotel guests and were even buying drinks!) They wanted us to instead pay to go in to the card and chess room.

    I just don't understand (fickle) Chinese authority sometimes... Freedom to lop off the reproductive organs of anything on four legs (and eat them), yet no freedom to play a board game in a hotel lobby. Also your photographic freedoms seem to diminish as you go north and west.

    For more laughs in the same vein, go to Engrish.com.

    I can't believe I missed this thread. I nearly choked and gagged on my food. This is so funny.

    Regards, Art.

    I don't get it. What is so funny?
    I had an order of 'F**k to fry the cow river' just last night for dinner.
    It was delicious.
