Awesome, thanks for this! Maybe this will help end my "point and grunt method". Speaking of which, I'm starving, so it's off to the Uyghur restaurant where I'll do just that.

My friend gave me a printed out chinese menu he found on the internet. There was both chinese and english names in the menu but the english translation was so badly done! In fact the translation was so bad that another friend of mine thought that it was done on purpose to entertain the foreign diners.

I am not sure. Does anyone knows whether it's real of just a joke for diners?

Here is an example from the menu:

干炒牛河 - F**k to fry the cow river
