Hong Kong fans of British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver fell about laughing on Wednesday after he announced a new Italian restaurant for the city in Cantonese -- with a few slip-ups.  Making a stab at the local Chinese dialect in a light-hearted YouTube video, he announces: "I will open an amazing Italian submarine."  Attempting to repeat words read out by a Cantonese-speaker off-screen, he also promises that the restaurant will be "very slippery", before collapsing into giggles.
