. . . to my buddy Dale who is traveling in China for business this week. He asked if I wanted him to get me anything while there. My response:

Dear Dale,

Please get me a chicken from China. I have no other reasoning beyond the ability to sing the line from the Barenaked Ladies song, "Chickity china the chinese chicken You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'." If it is illegal for you to get me a chicken, then I will be disappointed.

My second choice would be something labeled "Made In China." I don't think I've ever owned anything from there before.

I trust you will do your best.
