Wouldn't surprise me if some busybody whitetrash arsehole likely saw it and told some oriental guy 'hey, I saw something that should offend you, we should complain about it'...or maybe not. People aren't really like that are they?



Tao Nightclub & Asian Bistro in Las Vegas makes no secret of its tendency to fetishize the cultures on which it bases is cuisine and Buddha-lined interior. (See photo, on the next page).
