    I heard they have leaded, extra leaded and super extra leaded but no unleaded. Is that true?

    Lead: in China its sprinkled into the food, like a seasoning. I like my General Tso's chicken extra leaded.

    Do they really have General Tso in China? I think lead is already in the water supply and the cooking oil but if you want extra all you have to do is ask.

    And I was 'lead' to believe the Chinese-made Mattel (Chinese-made) toys that I just got for my birthday didn't contain any [size=+2]Pb[/size]. :neutral:

    Those clowns. Next thing you know, they're going to try and corner the market on fishing sinkers.

    I'd like to give sa hot 'n horny Chinese babe some serious lead-in-the-bed.

    I think they put coal directly in their fuel tanks and add some MSG for kick. ;o)

    Actually, yes. I had always thought it was a Chinese-American restaurant dish, but found that it's in China, too. Probably not necessary to ask for extra lead in the food-it normally contains more than enough toxins for non-addicted humans...

    'Hybrid' Chinese Restaurant: "Adolf Chang"

    Somewhat off-topic, but I went to one of these "fusion" restaurants where they combine two (or more) different type cusines. This one was a Chinese-German restaurant named Adolf Chang." My curiosity got the better of me, so I checked it out.

    The food wasn't bad...but an hour later, I found myself hungry for power.

    I think China got too much leader as it is now.

    My chinese friend said there is a popular street dessert that has lead compound powder in it. The additive is banned in the USA. The dessert is a big flour log that's deep fried.
