Wonton, a popular "Chinese" dish. Wanton, a reckless act of abandonment or violence. WONTON = the inverse of NOT NOW, impulse, speed. The appropriated icon, a hero of Chinese culture. The re-contextualizing of the symbol and the resultant fast, easily consumed, muddy result. Dedicated to all cultures once noble, now dead and assimilated into the North American palate.
