Ancient Mexican Secret

You know that you're in a multicultural, diluted society when you break open your fortune cookie after eating supper at a local Chinese restaurant, and read this bit of wisdom:

"Amor es devuelto con amor."

Or, in the vulgar tongue: "Love is repaid with love."

What's next? Asking for a menu, only to have the Chinese waitress stare at you in helpless consternation, while she shrugs and utters:

"Lo siento, no hablo Ingles."
