I Think That Kind of Noodles is Under the Counter
I’ve been studying Chinese for over nine months now. It’s been a fun and fulfilling experience and right now I’m cramming for a test that will measure my Chinese ability, the Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language. Along with me my newest co-worker Ballywhomp, whose Britishisms frighten and confuse me., I’m using Skritter to study and learn Chinese character and vocabulary.
Well the two of us were looking at the sign on a beef noodle restaurant when he asked me, “Wade, what does that sign say?” (Of course I translated this into intelligible English. What he really said was, “Guvner, wha’ are those Chinese scribblings trying to mouth wag?”)
“It says hand made noodles.”
Ballywhomp realized he had been bamboozled and said, “Yes, I suppose that makes more sense than hand job noodles.”
