    Um...so I googled this...just to see if I am mistaken and you are talking about a legendary Asian hero of folklore and not Ho Chi Minh the Vietnamese Communist Revolutionary. All I got was the Communist Revolutionary. Care to share the story of this person? Or did you just pick a name you knew to be part of the "far east"?

    I'm picturing the Robin Williams jokes about Mickey Mao right about now.
