    You should've taken some stimulant laxatives prior to going. They'd help move it through you quicker.

    Count how long it takes for someone to ask "Hi, how many?". I guarantee it's less than 4 seconds after you walk through the door.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I have been there once, like 12 years ago. I do not really plan to go back.

    I love the black pepper chicken and the crab rangoon.

    Yeah, it's probably been about five or six years since I've been there. Chinese buffets can be kind of sketchy, so I usually ordered the lo mein instead (it's a pretty safe bet when you don't know how the sauces on the other dishes will be at a place).

    forget it and go to CoCost. FANTASTIC. Wish they didn't up the prices though. I really liked "Wat chu wan? Fi Dolla." followed by a mumble into the microphone. Great times.

    Do yourself a favor and go to either Chinese Homestyle (cash only) on Lincoln Way&Sheldon or The Mandarin on Lincoln Way near East Hy-Vee. If you want buffet style and no sudden urges during dinner do Hy-Vee Chinese at West Hy-Vee.

    King Buffet in Omaha was not that bad. It was the Vietnamese all you can eat buffet in Omaha that failed all the inspections of their dog meat.

    Oh, the memories. Can't wait to get back home. Being south of the Mason-Dixon Line sucks.

    Dude, if you are going to say something like that, it had better be about chocolate syrup. Please, if you want to talk about diarrhea just go ahead and use the real word. It saves us all from having things like hershey's chocolate ruined.
