That was the title of an email in my inbox. I was most intrigued because I tried to learn Chinese a few years ago and failed horribly. My Chinese buddies would fall over themselves laughing at my attempts to learn their language and then they'd say it was safer for all concerned if we all spoke in English. Once in a while, when they felt like some amusement, they'd ask me to say, "hello, how are you?" in Chinese, then we'd all revert to English.
Anyway, the email turned out to be a joke. I thought I'd reprint it here as it tickled my funny bone.
