October 23, 2006: Chinese waiters shave heads for business



To counter the old Chinese guy who didn't wash his hair for 26 years, xoB suggests this item from Spluch which comes from a Chinese page. In a practice enforced by the restaurant own,er all the waiters have either a roman "h", the letters "ok", or the chinese symbol for noodles, shaved into their heads. The idea is to encourage business, of course.

haha

That one head of hair looks like it spells. 'ok'



Sun_Sparkz  Monday Oct 23 09:07 AM

so what does roman H, ok, and noodle have in common?



YellowBolt  Monday Oct 23 09:31 AM

According to the Chinese webpage, the letter H is supposed to represent the Chinese word for "good" (hao). OK just stands for OK, I think.

Wow I think I will run out and shave my emploeyer's name onto my head

They probably know what ok means, more than the thousands of westerners understand the oriental letters they get tattooed all over themselves.

My friend Nogg got one of those Chinese "lucky kitties" tattooed on him, and instead of the character he had them just put a question mark.

That's asking a bit much of your employees, no? I can imagine the job interview. "So. We like what we see, you seem like a team player, you've already got the Mission Statement memorized, you'll be a good fit! Now, shave a roman 'h' or the letters 'OK' on your head; your choice!-and, we're good! Can you start Monday?"

Hey, why are you asking me? Ask mrnoodle, ok?!


Sheldonrs  Monday Oct 23 06:35 PM

Hmmm...

Does this mean that if an employee is naturally bald, he is considered a handicapped employee?



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Oct 23 06:41 PM

Nope, he not considered an employee at all.
Welcome to the Cellar, Sheldonrs.



Sheldonrs  Monday Oct 23 07:11 PM

Thanks xoxoxoBruce. :-D

No. Then he gets to use the fuzzy side of velcro tape to spell the letters on his head. But then he can take it off at night! Unless the Chinese version of Big Brother watches him when he sleeps...

When the Mr.Show guys were still doing a two-man stage act, they would use electrical tape to add facial hair. Their reasoning: the audience is not being "fooled" regardless of how flawless your wardrobe magic is. Plus, you can quickly duck off-stage and slap an electrical-tape-beard on.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Oct 24 06:12 PM

They fired this guy.



BigV  Tuesday Oct 24 06:15 PM

sh*thead



OwenKL  Wednesday Oct 25 12:19 AM

Is it just my imagination, or is what little hair they have left also dyed green?



ashke  Wednesday Oct 25 01:10 AM

It's not an 'H', it's this word:



breakingnews  Wednesday Oct 25 02:07 AM

mian (4)

it's a simplified character for noodles. the actual character is 麵, for those who have chinese language pack installed.



ashke  Wednesday Oct 25 04:36 AM

That's just traditional chinese, which they don't use in China anymore...



Nao  Thursday Oct 26 01:56 AM

i'd visit their restaurant.



wolf  Thursday Oct 26 02:33 AM

I wouldn't if they shaved their heads near the soup.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Dec 17 10:35 PM

It seems when the novelty wears off, business drops off too, so they've started changing the style every two months.
