“Every time I eat Chinese I feel like I weigh won ton”

A “wonton” dumpling sounds like “one ton,” and there’s a pun:

“Every time I eat Chinese I feel like I weigh won ton.”

The jocular one-line saying was posted on Twitter on August 16, 2012.

“How much does a dumpling weigh?"/"Wonton” and “What’s the heaviest soup in the world?"/"Wonton soup” are other puns on “wonton.”


Wikipedia: Wonton
A wonton (also spelled wantan, wanton, or wuntun in transcription from Cantonese; Mandarin: húndun) is a type of dumpling commonly found in a number of Chinese cuisines.
