    Of course, most of the Asians in my area are either Laotian, Hmong/Other Vietnamese or Korean, rather than actually Chinese.
    I like taking my time to get help in translating the chinese menu. Best stuff is on there.
    As for fortune cookies I have no idea

    Cut this PC crap already!!! This is getting stupid. First, someone gets fired for the common phrase 'Chink in the Armor' and now this. America has become too PC for its own good.
    This is one of the few instances when I agree with conservatives about political correctness. This is not stereotyping Asians or Chinese in any way; Lin is Chinese, so they include something Chinese in the ice cream. Big deal.

    Speaking of Ben and Jerry's, I want to try Americone Dream.

    Actually, he is not Chinese. He is American of Taiwanese/Chinese descent. Fortune cookies aren't Chinese either. They were invented by Americans of Chinese descent. Both Lin and fortune cookies, incidently, are from San Francisco...

    That's stupid... His NAME has an 'l' in it. Don't you know the difference between Japanese and Mandarin for goodness sake... Rank ignorance at play here... Mandarin definately has an 'l' sound in it...
