Does any American think the Chinese may send us a bill like that pretty soon?

Bwhahahahahahaha.

Never mention "shaving cream" and "razor" in any room where the French may be present. Some of them take offense (snicker).

I heard that within 5 minutes of getting this bill she surrendered her paycheck to the phone company.

Very true, my brother - and, as it is well documented, I was once kicked out of France for trying to smuggle in a Right Guard stick. And don't even mention the word Axe - they'll shoot ya'.
