Wok + work

Wok + work

We have a long weekend coming up, which means most of us don't have to go to work on Monday. Perhaps we will spend our time at a barbeque, but a few of us might decide we want Asian food. If so, we may prepare it in a wok. I find that cooking in a wok is not a lot of work. Nor do I think that typing "work" is so difficult, but apparently some people forget to type that "r." The easiest way to find this typo is to look for the two words together, although you could also try eliminating cooking-related words.

Bonus: Sign seen in the restroom of a Chinese restaurant: Employees must wash hands before returning to wok.

I love woking and walking but that working thing isnt fun:)

I use to work in a chinese resturant and the board of health came in and demanded that everything be labeled. Rice, sugar, flour etc. When they came back a few weeks later, they were noticably upset because we didnt comply. He meant, but neglected to say "in english". They had everything labeled in mandarin, you know, the language of the employees! :)
In the end it was an easy fix and we all had a good laugh.
sorry about my spelling.
