Red Ghost

This wall scroll is discounted because of a very minor "red ghost".

If you are wondering, red ghost refers to a red shadow of the artist's red signature stamp. This is sometimes transfer from a previous painting which happens when the artist signs all of his work at the same time and piles up the paintings before the red ink is dry. It's more common than I would like, and it costs me a lot of money - but I am picky about quality, so my loss is your gain.

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my fortune cookie?

So after traveling to China, you have just finished your first meal in a real Chinese restaurant.
But the bill comes, and the waiter forgot to bring everyone their fortune cookies!
Well, actually not...
You see, fortune cookies did not come from China (at least not directly).
One legend has it in the late 1800s or early 1900s, a Chinese man running a noodle making shop in San Francisco accidentally mixed a bunch of sugar in his dough, and didn't want to waste it. So he made cookies and stuck papers with people's fortunes on them as a novelty.
In the end, it's really the Chinese visitors to America that are confused when the waiter brings them a blob of sugary noodle dough with a piece of paper stuck in it.
