Lunch Anyone?


A Chinese restaurant was caught unloading a roadkill deer into their kitchen in Kentucky. Customers at Red Flower Chinese Restaurant called the health department after watching workers wheeling a garbage can with a leg, tail and foot hanging out the side. The workers did try to place a box on top to hide the carcass but the blood trail was a dead give away. The health inspector investigated the owner’s son who admitted to the incident. The restaurant “said they didn’t know that they weren’t allowed to” bring roadkill into the kitchen.

I know it’s Kentucky, but do they not know what good Chinese food is? Nobody knows what is in their Chinese food. Somebody tell me what is the ingredient list for Seafood Delight or Mandarin Beef? Even something crazy like Egg Foo Young . . . what the hell is that? Who the hell is General Tao? Was he Colonel Sanders’ superior officer in the Army or something? Seriously, who does Kentucky think they are? Deer isn’t even that bad. As far as mystery Chinese food meat goes it could be a lot worse. If you are going to a Chinese buffet where you can get 100 pounds of food for five bucks you have to be a little suspicious. And that is double when you seek “authentic Chinese food” in the middle of Kentucky.

P.S. I love the George Costanza excuse by the owner’s son. “Was I not supposed to do that?” “Is that wrong?” Just fantastic.

    I never liked eating Chinese food out because you never knew what was in it. I always knew they ate cats and dogs in China, so assumed as much here, since I never saw a dog or a cat within 500 yards of a Chinese restaurant.

    So the concept of roadkill and Deer hardly surprises me. That’s a lot of meat in a Deer, and the price was right. So as long as you know you are eating this crap, it should not be a surprise.

    As a caveat to the guys out there. Some Chinese women can be great once you make sure they’ve brushed their teeth and gotten the deer out from between them.
