The wonderful Jamie has pointed me to a particular episode of US TV sitcom King of Queens: Deacon Blues which apparently features a British-Chinese guy manning a Chinese takeaway. Which is of course highly unusual. And when the lead character says “You threw me with the British accent thing”, said Chinese person does the standard haltingly-Chinese accent instead. So I’m told.
So now there’s something else I need to look for on the Internet. Care to help?
