Wok Out With Your Spock Out

What's up, jive turkeys? Life in Powelloplis is particularly sweet right now, because I recently got a wok. I've actually had this wok for a long time, but I didn't realize I had it until a month ago. I've been getting pretty familiar with this thing and in doing so, I've realized something: with a big enough wok, I could literally feed the world. (And no, I wouldn't break the wok apart and feed the world with wok-shards.)

Here's all you need to know about woks: 1.) they're large; 2.) they're non-stick. Sounds pretty good so far, right? Now consider this last little nugget: you make food in a wok just by stirring the food around. That's right, you don't even have to flip anything over. Oh, and did I mention the fact that woks are enormous and can make 5 meals worth of food in a single wokening (my own term)?

The past few weeks, I've really been getting my stir-fry on with this wok and it's been so successful, I considered buying every single male I know a wok for Christmas. I would also include some frozen veggies, a few chicken breasts, and a note that reads, "Believe in the magic." It's just too easy. Let your wok loose once a week and there's virtually no chance you'll get scurvy.

Some people are worried about Asian economies potentially taking the USA's place as the world's dominant power. After some a few wok experiences, I can say that these folks are right to be scared. If they apply the same ruthless regard for efficiency in cookware to any other industry, we can just give up. I don't know if we should even bother competing with them. They'll just do to us what they did to crockpots and frying pans, and I'm slightly interested in the brave new woky world.
