Can I have tomatoes?...NO. We don't have a potato.

I was watching MTV the other day and they had 'Boiling Point' on. I like the show because it shows people looking really weird when they are angry. It's just utterly hilarious and stupid at the same time.

Well they had this Chinese guy as the actor (the one instigating a boiling reaction of people) working at a salad bar. They had vegetables, or whatever you put in a salad (you name it). So this guy is having problems with his English. So when a guy asked for tomatoes he went we don't have potatoes. So you can spell the irony here as the customer had a hard time communicating to this Chinese guy who was actually acting.

Make me wonder sometime. Do people interpret us right? I do hope so because like the guy on boiling point, he really had a hard time telling the Chinese guy! Hilarious.
