Jackie Kin

Jackie_chan Today while visiting a friend for lunch, a black woman (whom I'd never met) at an adjoining table asked if I was related to Jackie Chan.  I told her "no" then asked if she was related to Eddie Murphy.

So here's the question: am I going straight to hell, or do I have to stop by the SAG office on the way?

Additional notes

1.  I was at a local psychiatric ward.

2.  She laughed.

3.  No, not to her knowledge.

You're going straight to hell, but so am I, so who am I to talk? :)

Joe: Oh good, company!

Stew: "that is rich!" I loove that expression! I don't hear it really enough. Do you think it's a northern/midwest thing? Or maybe an old-fashioned thing?

I don't remember "that is rich" being used in the midwest, but I do like that expression. I enjoyed the surprise notes after your story, and your question to the woman. Awesome.

Saying that you look chinese is like saying that I look greek. Hey, it's the same continent.

"So, are you related to Jackie Chan?"

"Well, i guess that depends on how far back you want to go."

Wait... Eddie Murphy is a woman?

Brian -- few realize that in The Nutty Professors (parts 1 and 2), the male parts were the cross dressing roles. Go Mama Klump!
