EXOLINGUIST: General, we’ve finally translated the aliens’ book, and you’re not gonna like it.

GENERAL: Hurry up, egghead, we’ve gotta load all these spaceships for their world.

EXOLINGUIST: “Banh bao nhan” means “To Serve Man”

GENERAL: Yeah, we already know.

EXOLINGUIST: It’s a cookbook!

GENERAL: What, you got something against Vietnamese food?

Best reply would be: “Dumplings, Alien! Take me to your steamer!”

Don’t be fooled if the chef calles you “dumpling,” it’s not a pet name.

Take one human, chop fine, add egg garlic and onion.
Mould into little flat patties in the palm of your cupped hand.
Cook in hot oil until brown.
Seve with a galand of spring herbs, and fresh cracked pepper.
Voila!

“Bánh bao nhân” means “stuffed bun/dumpling” (nhân=stuffed, bánh bao=bun/dumpling). They used the word “nhân” in order to distinguish with those buns/dumplings that are not stuffed.
“Nhân” alone literally means “human.” Seriously failed to translate into English. LOL.

I once saw a menu saying “Mực” (supposedly means squid there), but “mực” also means “ink.” And YET in that menu, they wrote “Mực-INK” for foreigners. LOL Who gonna eat “ink”? LOL.
