Betty Brown suggests Chinese restaurants rename menu items

Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?

God bless Betty Brown, who finds ordering things like Kung Pao Chicken and Moo Goo Gaipan confusing, if not outright embarrassing. And just who the hell was General Tso anyway? Wouldn't patriotic Americans feel more comfortable with General MacArthur Chicken?

How about Colon Powell Chicken?

Focus groups didn't care for any buffet items that included the term "colon" in their name, for some odd reason.

No joke, Coby. The Mayor and I actually had a study done. Do you want a copy of it?
