“I found stir fry all over my bed this morning. I must have been sleep wokking again”

“Wok” can sound like “walk.” Some people experience sleepwalking, and “sleep-wokking” has become a joke.
   
“While we’re talking about sleep..  I woke up this morning to the smell of stir-fry.  Do you suppose I could have been sleep-wokking?” was posted on Twitter by joelshannon on September 15, 2010. “Sometimes I come downstairs in the morning to find some stir-fry on the stove. I think my wife must be sleep wokking” was posted on Twitter by Jake Cohen on October 11, 2011. “Hear about the narcoleptic Chinese cook? He was always sleep wokking” was posted on Twitter by Burnedbridgesociety on August 13, 2012. “Wake up, Francis.

“Did you hear about the new Chinese cookbook? ‘101 Ways to Wok Your Dog‘,“ “What do you call a zombie who stir fries?”/“Dead Man Wokking” and “Why is stir fry never cooked on the ocean?”/“Because everyone knows you can’t wok on water” are other “wok” jokes.
   
           
Wikipedia: Wok 
A wok (Chinese: 鑊; Pinyin: huò; Cantonese wohk) is a deep round-bottomed cooking pan from China. It is common in China and similar pans are found in parts of East, South and Southeast Asia, as well as being popular in other parts of the world.
 
Woks are used in a range of Chinese cooking techniques, including stir frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup, smoking and roasting nuts.
