I found this a while back and thought those of you that have wandered into a Chinese restaurant a time or two might appreciate it.

I pretty much died laughing. Glad no one else was home.  Roll Eyes

All the sun long it was running, it was lovely, the hay
Fields high as the house, the tunes from the chimneys, it was air
And playing, lovely and watery
And fire green as grass,
And nightly under the simple stars
As I rode to sleep the owls were bearing the farm away,
All the moon long I heard, blessed among the stables, the nightjars
Flying with the ricks, and the horses
Flashing into the dark.

If you scroll down to the comments on that blog, you find that someone with a knowledge of kanji figured out just where they went wrong...f'ex: COWBOY equals VEAL (cow+boy....young cow...)
Cooked in Canola oil...canola=rapeseed...therefore, the dish has been raped...
Where the *fuck* came from is not explained...

Actually they do explain where the *fuck* came from.  That particular character can be translated either as "to dry" (which is how it should be translated for the menu) or "to do."  The "to do" translation has come to equal "fuck" as in when someone says "I'm going to Do so-and so."  This translation is identified as colloquial in the dictionary.  People who know no english tend to assume that the colloquial translation is the one they want because it is informal/common.
