I find that hard to believe. My Chinese friends in college told me "Chinese will eat anything that sleeps with its back to the sky." (Leading to inevitable jokes about people who sleep on their stomachs)

The sky is all over the place when you're in space.

Lisa: Then I'll have the sweet and sour rice.
Waiter: Oh very good. Is there any way we can enhance your dining experience by hurting an animal?
Lisa: No!

Nonsense... hoisin sauce and a slow cooker can make just about any space-meat doable.

The way I've heard it is, "If it flies and it's not an airplane, if it swims and it's not a submarine, or if it has four legs and it's not a table, the Cantonese will eat it."

Please....it was all faked on a sound stage in Xinjiang.

Most of these folks were from HK, so that's probably pretty similar!

I dunno, subby, hoisin sauce makes many things yummy.

Crap. Now I want Chinese.

Wonder if they have some videos of those astronauts made up a head of time in which they are shown exiting the space capsule just in case the re-entry goes bad in order to save face.

I always heard "if they can catch it, they will eat it."

He's just saying that because he ate all the good stuff.

I had always understood that under Navy rules, sleeping on one's stomach implied consent.

They probably have some rook-a-rikes waiting, just in case.

You stupid mother f*cking honkey. Hoison sauce is for vietnamese food not chinese food.

FTFA: "The astronauts will probably conduct photography of the interior of the module. This will help to show the overall condition of the living quarters after a period of heavy use."

Two men and a woman in cramped quarters for a couple of weeks? Yeah, I'd say the living quarters got some heavy use.

/rule 34 is everywhere...even outer space!

China doesn't allow porn!



Anyway, will the station want another load of astronauts in an hour?

I love how informative and bland that article was. I wish more articles were like it! Way better than the sensationalist and fact-devoid article they churn out in most other places.

Am I the only person that sees "hoisin" and thinks "Chosin reservoir"?

And then Frith told the first Chinaman: "All the world will be your smorgasboard, Prince With a Thousand delicacies."

Harry Freakstorm: C'mon. These have to be as good as anything General Tso ever whipped up


The funny thing is that General Tso's chicken (and most other "Chineese" take-out staples) were invented in America and have no relation to actual Chinese cuisine.

Conversely (or so I've been told) that if you go to an "American" restaurant in China, you won't recognize a single thing on the menu.

How I misread that...

Chinese ARISTOCRATS preparing to return to Earth after being unable to find any space creatures that tasted good with hoisin sauce


Somewhere between "we need a bad aristocrats joke involving Chinese people" and a biting commentary about the divisions within Chinese society despite claims of communism.
 
2012-06-26 07:28:22 PM  
"The trash, like the module, will be incinerated when the spacecraft re-enters."

I read "module" as if they were talking about the spacecraft that the astronauts re-enter the atmosphere in... I suppose they probably have plenty of astronauts where those came from...
