ROTFLMAOSHIH *GaSP!* ~ouchies~ Run screaming, I must add. I have had the absolutely miserable misfortune of being coerced into such a contest in a family reunion (the infamous Wong side of the family) in which there was no possible escape at all for any of the truly fluent English speakers (mostly the Sino-British Changs, the more Americanized Wongs & the poor, bewildered "round-eyes" who had the foolhardiness to be married into the Wong family). It's mindboggling how much liquor and beer was consumed that day and night (about US$3,700 worth amongst about 25-30 people... & most of it was consumed by the English speakers). czHANg23, Avatar of Sun WuKong, a.k.a.
