    Oohhh. Took me a little while to get this -- its like "they couldnt have, could they...?"

    But its unique, and by now quite famous -- viral advertising rools OK ;D

    (wonder what its *supposed* to say...)

    If this is deliberate, then in terms of advertising strategy it is quite brilliant - what an unforgettable name. Anyone at the Olympics will need to go and check out the restaurant with the crazy name.

    My father told me a story of his Navy service. While stopping over in Hong Kong he and some buddies visited a restaurant. They were laughing so hard at the mistakes in the menu they called the owner over to ask him what this is or that is. The owner handed them a pen and replied "Oh so sorry for mistakes. Please write in Chinese so I can correct them."
