Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Two Chinese women were sitting in a bar when they saw two guys fighting over which culture is smartest.
When the women heard this they went over and the first lady said,” We know a way to figure out which culture is the smartest.”
The second lady answered, “Yes we do. If you will buy us a couple of drinks we will tell you the way you figure it out.”
So, the guys figuring they had nothing to lose bought the girls a couple of drinks.
The first girl said, “The way to know is by seeing which culture uses the least number if utensils in eating.”
The men quickly began to listen eagerly to the women and ordered another round.
The first lady said,” Well the Indians use their hands to eat but their hands have five fingers, so they use five utensils to eat. So, they aren’t the smartest.
Next, come the Americans. They use a fork but there are four tongs on the fork, so they use four utensils.
Now come us Chinese. We use chopsticks and there are only two that makes us the smartest.”
As the lady finished and each poured down their last meal, the men sat puzzled for a second then finally agreed that Chinese were the smartest.
As they left, the second lady said to the first, “That was an easy way to get a few drinks and to get them thinking that we are the smartest.”
