Angels Don't Speak Chinese

Из свежего "Ансибля": любитель фантастики

In a bookshop.

Customer (pointing at Perdido Street Station by China Miéville): 'Excuse me, how do you pronounce this writer's name?'

Bookseller: 'Well, I've heard people say Mee-ville, but I think because of the accent, it's Me-eh-ville.'

Customer: 'No, I mean his first name.'

Bookseller: 'Well, it's China – like the country.'

Customer: 'The country?'

Занавес. За занавесом отдыхает китайская опера. Гыгыгы.
