Spanish/Chinese menu item incorporating the meat of endangered animals.
Stu knows perfectly well what an empanada is and can normally say it. One night at a Spanish restaurant, for some reason, he had some sort of verbal constipation and could only say “empanda”.
Later in the night he was musing over the use of bamboo for the place mats and wondered aloud if it was a traditional Spanish material.
To which I replied: “It’s for ’em pandas.”
