There are a lot of unfair stereotypes and jokes about Chinese food. I'm certainly no proponent of them, and I happen to love Chinese food.

Snopes here has the article about it and some of the history, but c'mon, there's no way that Chinese restaurants are serving animals and then labeling it as something else.
