->''"Ching, Chong, Oh Mister Ching Chong,\\
You are the king of Chinatown.\\
Ching Chong, I love your sing-song,\\
When you have turned the lights all down."''
-->-- "Ching Chong", by Lee S. Roberts and J. Will Callahan

A {{Stock Phrase|s}} used by non-Asians to be racist against the Chinese, and, due to InterchangeableAsianCultures, other Asians as well. Not to be confused with Ching-Chang-Chong, the usual German name of the game RockPaperScissors.

Although people who actually saw the bit on television were less likely to complain, a staffer for the show tweeted the joke and put the context in one tweet, then the joke in another.
