The two finance ministers from Japan and China met last weekend, ostensibly to talk currency, but instead, they spent a lot of time talking dumplings. Specifically, the dumplings made in China that made 10 people sick in Japan and were later found to contain pesticide, spawning all kinds of conspiracy theories.
Reuters reported that there had been a recent warming between the two countries, following strained relasians over “a spat over wartime history and a dispute about gas fields in the East China Sea.” [Ed. note: "Spat"? Really?] How amazing is it that after a century or so of bad blood between these two countries, it’s a bad batch of frozen dumplings that might put their relasianship back in a deep freeze?
