Rat: Did you know that Chinese is traditionally read from right to left, instead of left to right?
Pig: Oh my goodness. So they read the end of a book first?
Rat: No, you idiot. They put the beginning of a book at what we'd call the end and read in the reverse order we would.
Pig: Wow. Can you imagine if comic strips did that?
Rat: That would be very confusing.
