Do what the Chinese do

I’m reading the Chinatown script and can’t stop laughing at this one. It goes something like this:

A fella’s tired of screwing his wife, and he’s telling his friend about it. His friend says, “Why don’t you just do what the Chinese do?”

“What do they do?” the guy says.

“Here’s what they do,” the friend says. “You see, the Chinese will screw for a while, then they’ll take a break, and read some Confucius. Then they’ll screw some more, take another break, smoke a little opium. Then they’ll get back to it, screw some more, and after a few minutes, they’ll take another break to contemplate the moon or something. It all helps to keep things fresh and exciting.”

“That sounds like a good idea,” the guy says. “I’ll give it a shot.”

So the guy goes home. After a few minutes of screwing his wife, he gets up, takes a break, and goes into the other room to read a Life magazine. He comes back, starts screwing some more, says, “Excuse me a second,” then gets up and smokes a cigarette. After the cigarette break, he starts screwing for a few more minutes, then gets up and starts looking at the moon.

“What the hell’s wrong with you?” the wife says. “You’re screwing like a Chinaman.”
