Big Trouble In Little China

So Marielle and I had dinner at Hap Chan in Ali Mall last night. Yes, they serve the best shrimp dumplings (hakao) in Araneta Center—sorry North Park. Anyhoo, we got into a brief argument that ended with me threatening to order the most expensive item on the menu (she was paying that night).

This reminds me of a joke my buddy Clyde once told me: A married couple decides to go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant. They check out the menu and finally agree to share the chef’s special called “Chicken Surprise.”

The waiter brings over the meal, served in a lidded iron pot. Just as the wife is about to start in on the meal, the lid of the pot rises by a tiny amount and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

“Good grief, did you see that?” she asks her husband. He didn’t so she asks him to look in the pot.

In shock, the husband calls the waiter over, relates the incident and demands an explanation.
