    Just Wok Away, Buddy From Not Always Right :

    One evening, I went out for dinner with friends to a local Mongolian BBQ. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of restaurant, you are seated at a table, and then you get up and get into a line where there’s a buffet of raw items you pile up into a bowl. At the end of the line, you hand the bowl to a cook who stir-fries your mixture on top of a giant flat wok and then gives it back to you.

    As I was back at my table and eating, this guy approached the table.

    Guy: “Excuse me, you’re out of bean sprouts.”

    Confused, I looked at my bowl and then at this older guy who was apparently talking to me. He seemed annoyed and pointed at the buffet.

    Then, it hit me. He thinks I worked there, solely based on me being Asian. My friends, non-Asian, started laughing.

    The guy did not apologize. He just walked away and yelled the same thing at the wok guy.

    “Man At Wok” was the trademark saying of “Wok with Yan,” a Chinese cuisine cooking show starring Stephen Yan. The show was first produced in Vancouver, British Columbia by CTV affiliate CHAN-DT in the late 1970’s

    A running gag featured on the show was Yan’s wearing of an apron featuring a different pun on the word “wok.” Some examples are:

    Wok & Roll- Wokking My Baby Back Home- Danger, Yan at Wok- Wok Around the Clock- Wok the Heck- You Are Wok You Eat- Wok Goes up Must Come Down- Wok’s New, Pussycat?- Wokkey Night in Canada- Stuck Between a Wok and a Hard Place- Raiders of The Lost Wok- Eat Your Wok Out- Moon Wok- Wok Your Butts Off- Jailhouse Wok- Superior Wokmanship- Wok-A-Doodle-Doo- Wok Before You Run- Wok Me Amadeus- Wok up Little Susie- Wok Don’t Run- Don’t Wok The Boat- 101 Ways to Wok the Dog

    Katie Bar the Door Origin

    “Katie bar the door” is an idiom originating from the early 1800s. The idiom’s origin is hard for us to trace, but it seems to evolve in American media and society, with use almost exclusively in American culture. However, the actual origin of the phrase may have Scottish or Irish roots.
