That having been said, there are a lot of things I don't ever want to know about Chinese restaurants. Like the hygiene regimen back in the kitchen. Or the origin of their meat products. I've heard it is sometimes cat; at other times dog. For all I know it comes from indentured servants who upset the boss. See related story below.
17 Chinese Restaurants Raided in Mich.The question becomes: What happens to those who are unable to work off their debt? Are those individuals ever heard from again? I go back to my original point.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Authorities raided 17 Chinese restaurants around Michigan that they suspect of ducking millions of dollars in taxes and importing undocumented workers as a "modern version of indentured servants."
Search warrants were also served at 21 homes of suspected undocumented Chinese workers. Dozens were involved in the scheme, State Police Lt. Curt Schram said. "
It cost them X number of dollars to come to this country and they're trying to work off that debt," Schram said. (link)
Regardless, the stuff tastes great. I don't care who or what I'm eating. Just don't tell me. Please.
