Unless it’s a piece of fruit or vegetable that you’ve grown yourself EVERYTHING we eat is nasty if you give it any thought. We all freak out at the thought of someone “spitting” in our food but think nothing of drinking milk that comes from a cow

Imagine the horror of someone preparing a meal for you, with a cut and accidentally dripping blood a little blood onto the ground beef they were cooking for you.

We pay good $ to eat shellfish, sometimes raw with the animal’s piss, shit, undigested food and jizz all packaged in a slimey bite sized package, mmmm YUMY.

Ever think about all the “extra” protein in commercially made tomato sauce, fruit juices, ketchup or peanut butter?

How about hot dogs, sausage, lunch meats and other processed meats?

My point, if whatever you’re eating, chinese or otherwise and it tastes good and doesn’t make you barf or ass blast, does it really matter where it comes from?

Reality most everything we consume is nasty as a mofo if you give it any thought.....

When I was game warden we got a call from a women. She saw a guy stop and put a road killed deer in the trunk of his car. She decided to follow him. He drove to the back door of a chineese restaurant. Our guys showed up and caught them in the kitchen cutting up the road kill.

Did the deer get hit on Elm Street? While you were driving to the “chinese restaurant” did you pass by a big guy walking along the side of the road wearing a goalie’s mask and carrying a machete?

It's not a big surprise to most of us here if you read replies here. I know someone that has some stocked farm ponds that a Chinese restaurant owner pays to harvest fish from. I dont know why this is hard to understand that restaurants can and do buy for from a multitude of sources in aggregate.

I know of commercial fishing operations that sell to other restaurants as well. Not just Chinese.
Great lakes and other locations.

Raising my hand.

This may shock you - commercial fisheries on the east coast ship fresh to the west coast and everywhere else in between.

Alaska has a road kill list. Anytime a game animal is killed by a car, the next person on the list get's it. There is a time limit (don't know what it is) where the guy has to go get the animal. These animals help feed people up there and that animal isn't wasted. One time a truck carrying frozen salmon went off the road. My friend was next on the list. he got several hundred salmon that time.

In your case, I'm glad that lady followed the guy who picked up the deer. It's hard to say if the meat was still good but it probably was since many hunter hang deer for several days before processing them.

Something else that can't be determined is, was he going to sell it at his restaurant?

Last spring or summer a news truck in the Raleigh area caught some Chinese folks picking up a deer off of I-40. They followed the truck back to a Chinese restaurant where they took the deer inside. They got it all on camera and then went inside the next day and confronted them with the evidence. They denied serving it. I generally don't trust Chinese restaurants anymore. It's sad but too many stories that appear to be true in regards to cats and road kill and such just seem to be maybe the norm and not the outlier. There are negative, neutral and positive stereotypes and all of them have some basis in truth of human behavior. I think the stereotype of Chinese restaurants may have that same kind of underlying truth. I will leave it up to you reading this whether it's a negative , neutral or positive stereotype. Lol

IVe never gotten sick eating at a Chinese restaurant. Most of the time the food has been pretty good and not too expensive . I’ll keep eating there from time to time despite the esteemed, well researched findings of this forum.

If it had been Billy Bob at the local Catfish/BBQ joint you wouldn't think that much of it. Skinning out a deer in the parking lot BFD.

They are that way with almost everything....
The Asian clients my wife has in real estate...they work the old "money kept under the mattress" approach. They'll usually own a business, but declare very little money from it, yet they're almost always full cash buyers. And when it comes to negotiation time...they'll hardly budge.
