I happen to be Chinese. I don't find this funny in any way, shape or form. I think the jokes made are in poor taste. If I could meet you all in person I would give you all a "chop-suey-chop" to the larynx.
I'm sorry RCjohn, this is just too funny. I know you didn't mean it to be but I can't stop laughing!
On a serious note. The Chinese pilot was apparently notorious among the US Navy pilots in the area. According to CNN, in one incident he was flying real close(AGAIN) and holding a sign that appeared to be an email address! This guy trying to defect???? The US Navy has a picture of this but will NOT release it for fear of jeopordizing the talks.
Maybe he should have changed his name to "Sum Ting Wong"!
