In America you can get Chinese food that's somewhat similar to a type of Chinese food found in one particular area of China. And for the most part, that's all you can find.
Forks, of course, are not traditional to China, but then neither is the fortune cookie which is actually of Japanese origin.
Along with being "Chinese" this meal also qualifies as being traditional Jewish food for Christmas Day.
Such a mish-mash of cultures; but that's America for you.

An album full of sunshine and wide open spaces.
The Raveonettes: Raven In The Grave
Something to listen to while driving empty streets at night.
PJ Harvey: Let England Shake
Folk music which could be interpreted as either anti-war or ultra-nationalistic; it's too beautiful to matter.
Lindi Ortega: Little Red Boots
A classic country album. Fun!
Austra: Feel It Break
Eerie, beautiful, and danceable.
Impress your friends with this jazzy French album.
Gotye: Making Mirrors
This album doesn't come out in the US until February of 2012, but I'm too hipster to worry about things like borders. A variety of styles are represented on the album, from Motown to Alt-rock to experimental-electronic, and they're all done well.
