You know what I miss most about American culture?

I miss Thai food cooked by a cook from Thailand (Man, I miss the Rau
Mit in St. Paul!), Greek food cooked by Greeks (I miss _It's Greek To Me!_ on
Lake Street!), I want some Potatoes O'brian, a grilled cheese sandwich and a
chocolate malt from the St. Paul Diner! Chinese food cooked by Chinese, Mock
Duck cooked by a Vietnamese, Chicago style thick crust pizza! I don't wan
no octopus and raw bacon on my pizza!. Hold the squid ink sauce on the pasta!
:^) Makes your teeth black!
