You know it was only a matter of time before a Taiwanese news outlet (how come Fox 11 News doesn't do this kind of thing?) came up with a superawesome CGI recreation of the Great Dumpling Incident of 2010. (Video after the jump).
We're talking, of course, about San Gabriel Mayor Albert Huang's run-in at a local restaurant last week with a female friend who slapped him with a steamer of dumplings like he was a dollar-short ho. Then things got really strange:
She headed to an ATM, he reportedly pawed at her cash when she returned, and he allegedly took off with her purse in his car -- and the woman hanging on.
All that led to Huang's arrest on suspicion of felony robbery and assault. He resigned from his top-dog position in San Gabriel this week.
He should just be happy they weren't at a lobster restaurant or, gulp, a place specializing in Vietnamese banh mi -- those sandwiches made from long, hard French bread. Yikes.
