Haiku

Walk on concrete,
Live in concrete,
Heart of concrete.

—Won Dim Phuc (busboy at Fong Lee's, 66 Elizabeth Street, NYC)

I heard this bromide uttered back in the late '70s, as I and a couple of friends (known, for some reason, as "the Yambos") attempted to skip out on the check. All was forgiven when the cleaver-wielding Won got his money (and extorted a sizeable tip, as well). For our trouble we were favored with this sage advice.

I was in South Carolina and saw a sign outside of a Chinese Bar and Restaurant: "Tonight in the Lounge: Lohg Tan Kok." We ate at Cracker Barrell instead.
