yoisthisracist:

Gwen asked: Yo, this photo is from a dessert place in Portland, Oregon advertising an event called “Dim Sum Yum Yum” where you sample a bunch of different desserts. Leaving aside the stupid name (the connection to dim sum is tenuous at best; there’s not even a cart!) this is ridiculously racist. So yes, I know the answer already, but I want the satisfaction of reading your response. P.S. U CUTE
 INT BREAK ROOM, THE STAFF IS GATHERED FOR A MEETING MANAGER Ok, so we’re agreed then, we’ll go with Dim Sum Yum Yum. * General buzz of approval from the employees. Slowly, one hand goes up near the back of the room * WAITER Sir? MANAGER Great job everyone. Dim Sum Yum Yum, ha! WAITER Sir? MANAGER Oh, yes? WAITER Are you sure Dim Sum Yum Yum is… chinky enough? * Amused snickering throughout the room * MANAGER What are you talking about, of course it’s chinky enough! What more could we possibly do?!?! WAITER Well… it’s just that I got this hat…
