Don’t Fork with the Chinese

The ACLU is investigating reports that a group of Berkeley students were allegedly angrily thrown out of a local mom-and-pop Chinese restaurant. “All we did was ask for a fork, man,” insisted one of the students. “But maybe bringing up the whole Tiananmen Square thing was a bad idea. They didn’t see the irony of the fact that the students were gathered next to what the government had declared the ‘Democracy Wall.'”

The owners of the restaurant later apologized for their actions, admitting that “calling it the ‘Democracy Wall’ probably really threw people off,” that installing blast furnaces out in everyone’s backyards “just doesn’t work,” and later, that “maybe forks aren’t such a bad idea after all.”
