Asking a favour from all you Chinese people out there.

I was buying groceries the other day and saw yet another white person with a Chinese calligraphy tattoo. It’s fine for a non-Chinese person to have Chinese writing on their body, but I think that little piece of strategic anti-essentialism isn’t usually done with any more thought than, “that’s soooo cool!” Maybe I’m wrong…I’d like to be wrong. Anyway…it made me think of a good joke to play for anyone who is ethnically Chinese:

When you see somebody with one of those tattoos, put on your best cheezy James Hong accent and say something like, “You must really like pineapples!” When they question your assertion, or after that likely moment of silence, point at their tattoo and yell, “pineapple! Ha, ha, ha!”

I would be grateful.
