So darn many of them ...
Melvin Udall: Never, never, interrupt me, okay?

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

It seems that it may now be more advantageous for the competent authorities to shakedown Chinese rather than barangs. This is simply because the large numbers of Chinese in the country makes it more profitable.

Every cloud has a silver lining.
