My Politically Incorrect Doggy Bag

I busted into some leftover thai food for dinner tonight. Upon closer inspection, I noticed what the take-out container said:I didn't think that referring to things as "Oriental" was acceptable anymore. Am I wrong? Or is this 1952?

This is 1952.

I know you're just waiting for me to jump on this one being the resident Ornamental.

Came over from PW. Congrats on your win, but mostly want to say thanks for your mis-spellings. I can't tell you how many times I make errors on my comments, even after proofing them. I want to immediately fix them, which you can't...Anyway, thanks for making me lauch and feel normal.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can use the word Oriental when talking about a "thing", i.e. an Oriental Rug or Oriental Food. But you cannot use it when referring to a person or group of people.

Niki has it right on the nose.

Oriental = cream of sum young guy
Asian = Chinaman named after a duck's dork

Any questions?
