Those sharks turned up at a local sushi bar an hour later.

There's a reason we all bitch about cheap Chinese made things with bad welds on shitty metal that is full of impurities. When you cut corners on everything to save a few cents, accidents happen.

wow... even for the chinese, that's pretty ridiculous.

and c'mon, mr. ree... you don't really believe sushi is chinese, do you? seriously? you gotta be pullin' our puds with that one.

Of course I know that that sushi (or sashimi) is a traditional Japanese dish. We have many sushi bars/restaurants all across the USA, so I'm sure there are sushi bars/restaurants in China since they have become somewhat 'Americanized'.
Besides, other than a very small minority of readers of this site (you being one of them), most people reading this are well below my intelligence level, so many times, I have to dumb down my comments just so most readers can even understand them. The smarter ones get the humor, the rest get upset.

"shark fin soup" would have been the perfect quip for china, but i follow your logic to a point.

to get all scholarly like a mofo, i don't think sushi restaurants are particularly common in china for several reasons... #1 the 'american piggyback' phenomena is probably not all that significant, otherwise we'd see more of the same with different foreign influences; #2 there is still a lot of national antipathy towards all things japanese, as we just read about via the international island dispute, #3 sushi spread to japan from southern china, so i'm reasonably sure that the chinese maintain their own variants, or at least their own equivalents. having said that, apparently sushi (or at least bad sushi) has been around in HK for decades. of course, HK is anything but typical chinese. but there's maybe (probably?) a couple sushi restaurants in the largest, most-cosmopolitan cities, like shanghai and qingdao. i'd love to get a more definite answer, though.

EDIT: i asked some people who'd been around china. seems that there's some sushi restaurants in the bigger cities. i guess you win this round.
