1 Ophelia: More documentation. What a drudge. Nothing interesting ever happens around here, Mercutio.
2 Mercutio: There's an ancient Chinese curse...
2 Ophelia: "Interesting times." Yeah, I know.
3 Mercutio: No. "May your traditional cuisine be unrecognisably corrupted and then presented in small, easy-to-carry boxes to foreigners."
4 Ophelia: What?
4 Mercutio: See, now that was interesting.

I originally wrote Mercutio's line as:
"May your traditional cuisine be unrecognisably corrupted and then presented to foreigners in small, easy-to-carry boxes."I realised that could be misinterpreted as saying that the foreigners were in small easy-to-carry boxes.
This is so much so that Wikipedia has separate articles on:
A side effect of this divergence in cuisines that I notice when I travel to the USA is that, despite eating Chinese food frequently at home, when I go to a Chinese restaurant in the USA, I don't really recognise any of the items on the menu. I am not kidding, virtually everything on the menu is completely new to me. It's a bit like being in the Twilight Zone.
