Oh, I'm sure they want nothing but peace and prosperity for all.

So we no longer have to worry about them all jumping and landing at the same time, causing a global earth-shake?

The American king game is working. First we let them get a foothold in various developing countries. Next they get fat and happy. Then they'll get heart disease and die young!

All according to plan.

Oh NO!!

Real 'Merican patriots, we don't want China to overtake us on the obesity front! Everyone rush to their nearest Fat* Food joint and eat 4000 calories or more!! Make America Fatter Again!!

*Not a typo. A term my mom used.

Yes, our master plan of fattening up the Chinese population with American fast-food is coming to fruition.

...And I look like a God damned fool for not reading the article.

We were grossly mislead by our parents. Unfortunately it's too late to un-eat those vegetables.

Yes yes. Keep eating that KFC. The plan is working beautifully.

No surprise.

"McDonald's China's website described the taste of the Oreo and Spam burger as "tender and juicy," "full of meatiness" and with "a hint of sweet aftertaste" that amounts to "an unimaginable double surprise."

I stand corrected. Double surprise.

I feel it necessary to also quote that article: "It has a very strong meaty and satisfying texture."

The double entendres are just as satisfying as the surprise.

They were skinny. But it used to be that if you had a bicycle and a washing machine, you were rich, so people rode bikes everywhere or walked, and most washed their clothes by hand. And traditional Chinese food is mostly rice and vegetables, and there were no fast food joints. Things changed a lot in 25 years.

I for one welcome the possibility of large numbers of reasonably sized Asian breasts and hindquarters. I think this was something the world was seriously lacking in previous times.

You do have to give the Chinese credit for going from "starving peasants" to "overweight salary-men" in a generation.  Let's see if the CCP can keep up with those expanding expectations as well as waistlines.

What they eat has changed a lot, quickly. There is much more meat in the diet now, and a lot more access to fast food.
That said, they do have different expectations. A Chinese friend of mine went to the USA for a year of study. She gained weight, but Americans still exclaimed about how skinny she was, but when she got home everyone talked about how fat she had gotten.
