Chinese Take-Outs

One thing I noticed
Chinese take-outs
or take aways as the Brits say
most of them seem to have the same kind of big lighted menu sign
Moo Goo Gai Pan, General Tso Chicken
Shrimp Lo Mein, Sesame Chicken
Kung Pao Chicken, Broccoli with Chicken
more stuff I never order
behind the counter
the lights are usually burned out
or only half of them are working
kinda like the ones in the liquor store
and the Bourbon Chicken
tastes the same in like
every place no matter where you go
Guangzhou Shanghai Changsha
Toronto London Kokomo, Indiana
I get the pepper steak myself
and smile at the cute young ladies
who take and get my order
or those cute Chinese waitresses on the Yangtze River cruises 
who are dirt poor
and have fake American names like Julie, Debbie, and Mary
