Since we pride ourselves on diversity sensitivity in Vancouver with our multicultural composition and acceptance of various minority, lifestyle, and social groups, Chinese New Year should be no exception.
A good example is Gung Haggis Fat Choy, which caters to the Scottish, Chinese, and Scottish-Chinese-Canadians-who-like-to-wear-kilts-in-the-freezing-winter communities.
To make the occasion more inclusive, here are a few suggestions of appropriate celebratory expressions (adapted from the Chinese New Year expression Gung Hay Fat Choy), for people of different social groups.
vegetarians: Gung Hay Bok Choy
dieters: Gung Hay Skinny Choy
health food eaters: Gung Hay Flax Chow
overeaters: Gung Ho Fat Boy
crazy cat ladies: Gung Ho Cat Meow
rednecks: Dung Hay Farm Boy
cheeky gay men: Hung Gay Fag Boy
untalented entertainers: Gong Show Fat Chance
Guidos: Go Away Fat Chance
movie buffs: Chow Yun Fat Choy
drunken male university students: Gung Hey Frat Boy
hip-hoppers: Gang Hey Phat Homeboy
Irritable Bowel Syndrome patients: Gurgle Hay Fart Choy
people with rotting body parts: Gangrene Hay Fat Ew
