Won has always thought of wonself as more of a rangoon...

Lettuce not forget Christopher Marlowe:
"I must have wonton poets, pleasant wits,
Chow Mein-like cooks who are so deft of paw,
May serve the holy me-al as I please."

Indeed, and Shakespeare:

"What's in a Wonton That which we call a dumpling
By any other name would taste as sweet."

Bacon is the essence of the Wonton? That sounds sacrilicious! (the good meaning) :haha:

We find the subtle argument even in popular culture:
By order of the Prophet
We ban that boogie sound
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy wonton sound...

After further meditation (and the realization that The Great Noodle doesn't allow users to edit original posts), it has been revealed to me that the first asterisk ( * ) and second asterisk ( * * ) should be stated as follows:

* ‘Supremely Delicious’ is defined as having maximal tastiness* * in every possible world. A supremely delicious wonton cannot exist in anything less than all possible worlds or else it would not be supremely delicious.

* * ‘Maximal Tastiness’: If a wonton was delicious in one possible world then it would only be kind of tasty; if it was more delicious in that same possible world then it would be tastier; etc. A wonton must have the ultimate amount of taste in a possible world in order for it to be maximally tasty, and it must be maximally tasty in all possible worlds in order for it to be supremely delicious. The concept of maximal tastiness implies the necessary existence of a supremely delicious wonton.


All hail progressive revelation!
