Why I Would Be Considered An Illiterate Chinese Redneck

Spending some time with my mom this weekend (I mentioned she wasn't feeling well before). Its just me, poor hubby is at home watching the kids.

Last night, whilst I went into orgasm over this new restaurant my parents recently discovered, it was nice to hang with my them.

"The best of all I love about Chinese food in a pot! Lap Cherng (Chinese sausage), salty fish and fan jew (crispy rice from the bottom of the clay pot)!!" I exclaimed while making a pig of myself.

The 'rents only smiled indulgently.

Today, I'll be heading back down south home after an early dinner. In the meantime, had to scour the Chinese gossip rags for something fun and silly to post...came up with this:

"Oh looky Mom, why is this guy looking at what I'm sure is a blow up doll so longingly? He couldn't be about to...omg...but yes he is..."

"*Gasp* Hump it!!"

She only rolled her eyes and she grabbed the mag from my hand and scanned the article quickly. "They're making a movie about an autistic guy who has the mental age of a 10 year old and they're trying to teach him sexual technique. Apparently no live girl would volunteer for the job, so they are using a rubber doll. These are stills from the movie."

"Awesome. Its so salacious I must publish this to my blog!!"

"Only people from the countryside who can't read and are not sophisticated would fall for this! They look at the pictures and ooh and ahh and buy the magazine because they think it really happened. The magazine knows exactly who their target audience is."

"But Mom, I can't read Chinese and I'm oohing and ahhing over the pictures."

"That explains a lot."

*Le sigh.
