Rhymes with "mop dive cyst"
March 29, 1999
~~~ NOTE FROM CHRIS: ~~~
NOTES: It was recently revealed that China may have
stolen US nuclear secrets back in the 1980's.
While the folks in Washington try to figure out who
to blame for this mishap, Top5 searched for some evidence...
The Top 12 Signs China Has Stolen US Technology
- Mao pajama suits now much baggier and more ill-fitting.
- Think they came up with that "Tickle Me Mao" on their own?
- Kung fu movie dialog suddenly in synch with the images.
- Most popular fast food dish at McFong's: McBeef with Snow Peas and McWontons.
- "Secret" Kung Pao sauce bears striking resemblance to thousand island dressing.
- President Jiang Zemin seen wearing one of those baseball caps that holds two beer cans.
- Rice now flavored with Chairman Mao's secret blend of 11 herbs and spices.
- Traffic accidents increase dramatically with availability of new "bike phones."
- New missiles are now armed with clapper-activated Chia warheads.
- New "Jerry Springroll" TV show features embarrassingly ignorant peasants beating each other silly over infidelities.
- Meals are now eaten in half the time, thanks to the wondrous new invention, the "fork."
and the Number 1 Sign China Has Stolen US Technology...
