Americans can eat Chinese, but Chinese can't eat Americans?
No offence!! Please take it just for knowledge. I heard one of my friends saying **Americans can eat Chinese but Chinese can't eat Americans**. He said so for fun, and everybody was just laughing. But I want to know how the English language comes into the picture. One thing, I guess, is that there is a game of plurals. Where Chinese in singular and plural has same letters, but not American? P.S Of course, it was about Chinese food.
