An Interesting Exchange

I come home tonight and start frying some dumplings for my dinner.  I say to my mother-in-law ‘Mom, please leave this oil in the pan, I’ll use it tomorrow morning to fry an egg for breakfast.’

‘No, you have to throw it out, it’s burned.’

‘It’s not burned.  Anyway, we re-use oil all the time in America.’

‘That’s why you’re all fat.’

‘ . . . ‘

‘If you eat burned oil you get fat.’

‘ . . . Oh.’
