Here is a list of the most interesting questions I was asked in Hong Kong.
Q. Do you want your orange juice hot or cold?
A. Cold, please. Thank you for asking. “Hot Juice” would be a good name for a band, though. No-one has ever asked me that question before.
Q. Don’t you find that Hong Kong is just like New York?
A. What? Maybe if New York was 99% Chinese. Do you know what the phrase “Melting Pot” means? I saw a black dude yesterday and I thought I’d won some sort of a prize. Hong Kong looks like New York probably will in 2025.
Q. I saw your Facebook profile yesterday, and in one of the photos you looked very thin (indicating in the neck and face where I was looking more thin.) Were you thinner when you were younger?
A. For one thing, thank you so much for asking. Secondly, no, unfortunately I was born this size. Like Athena springing from her father’s head full-grown, I exploded my mother. I never got to meet her, but I did see her bloody shoes left on the floor.
Questions I have for Hong Kong:
Does a giant black skull make people want to buy high-end t-shirts?
Does every event really have to have a mascot? Here’s the one for the Shanghai technology expo.
Can it…is it following me?
