What's in sweet & sour sauce anyway?

We had Chinese food for dinner the other night.  The waitress asks my friend what kind of rice he wants.  He asks what kinds they have.  She says, "White or brown." 
"Yeah, but what kinds of rice?" he clarifies.
"There are different kinds of rice?" she asks, surprised.
This is how he ended up with dry brown rice.

After he tried the rice, he asked a waiter for sweet & sour sauce.  He was told they didn't have any packets of it, so the waiter would bring him some from the kitchen.  The waiter soon delivered a bowl full of sweet & sour sauce.  I innocently ask, "What's in sweet & sour sauce?"  My friend's theory--little Chinese girls because little girls are made from sugar and spice and everything nice.  So now it seems that sweet & sour sauce is made for $2 an hour by little Chinese girls.  Think about that the next time you go out for Chinese.

So in order to explain what kind of white rice it was, the girl taking our order went over and brought over someone's dinner such that I might inspect the white rice and tell her. Now white rice looks white, whether it be Jasmine or Long Grain. I couldn't tell, but the dinner looked good.

The bowl of sweet and sour sauce was so big, that the little chinese girls who made it couldn't eat any sauce, and they had to eat their dry brown rice.

I just have to tell all ya'll that I just received a visit to my blog for someone that was searching for "little chinese girls". Funny and disturbing at the same time. Oh, and all his fault.
