So how do you read it?

a) A person from China overcooks the evening meal?

b) Some obscure ceremony whereby those attending the evneing meal are subjected to a 'chinese burn'

  • Thanks P. Short - or no paragraph breaks - seems to work more often

  • Sue's comment did't work. Abbrev. version here. She thought (b) too. Haggis and sweet & sour sauce????!
