If there's a lull in dinner conversation

The colloquial term for "cat poop" in Cantonese is pronounced similarly to "Melvin."

Jack Nicholson plays Melvin Udall in As Good as It Gets.

The film's translated title in Hong Kong?

"Mr. Cat Poop."

I'm not kidding: we just got off the phone making dinner plans with our neighbor tomorrow. She's from Hong Kong. Can't wait to bring this up.
