Con ate,I think this will become a permanent thread.
Showed this to my wife and her cousin today. My wife didn't say anything. She went into the next room and came back with a pair of giant-size clothespins, pointed them at me and said, "Your turn"

Sounds like your wife and mine could be related ( in mischief... )

Floating in the air like bricks don't aliens from the planet Tile, previously frustrated in their attempts to make contact with primary household structures sought communication one day with the mammals.  They happened upon Chinese Gong Fu master Chen Xi'r T'les. 

Owing to superior attunement to his environment and a grave sense of his responsibility to society, when Chen noticed two bricks floating beside him he whirled around and called out a warning to the crowd of people who like Chen had been engaged in respectful observance of Solemn Red Pants Day.  "Look out!  Stand back!" Chen called.

The aliens looked at one another, and smirked.  The bricks were heard to yell "Nipple cripple," just before they attacked.

"Oh," Chen said.

The aliens are known for their steadfast support of the One China policy.
There is little in history to support the proposition that China was indeed the centre of the Asian universe commanding deference among less civilised states around its periphery...

"Don't worry, folks, the only other choice they gave me was to sit in a padded room with no food or water or sleep and have a tape consisting of "Yesterday Once More", Backstreet Boys and Kenny G on a perpetual loop.  This is like heaven compared with that."
It is too early to say.

Geez, makes my qualms about moving to China to teach English seem kind of trivial... Is this guy a teaching a "foundation" course? (I have heard they are to be avoided.)
