Mental detritus from the daily drive to work

Irish Blessing:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Taiwanese Curse:

May binglang spit cling to your shoes,
May your neighbors run a Mahjong parlor.
May all your bread have red bean inside,
The typhoons all arrive on a Saturday.
And until your next visa run,
May a choudoufu stand open in front of your house.

I thought it was called "pork hair", but yeah. Missed that.

1. Visa runs are passe
2. No riding behind a pig truck?
3. I have had a choudou fou stand open in front of my house AND it blasted music loud enough for Taiwanese to complain about the noise!

I need to fit one more in there: May all the movies on your cable TV feature Steven Seagal.
