How Do You Say “Bow-Chicka-Wow-Wow” In Chinese?

The last few days before Christmas my boss was kind enough to keep the staff well fed with Chinese food. Buckets and buckets of the stuff.

“The current year will bring you much happiness”… in bed. (are you paying attention to that one, Cookiemaker? 🙂 )

“You have a natural grace and great consideration for others”… in bed. (just ask Cookiemaker 🙂 )

I bet you’ll never read another fortune cookie fortune the same way again!
