Walking through Chinatown, a backpacker saw a Chinese laundry with the sign: “Sigurd Kristiansen’s Laundry”

‘Sigurd Kristiansen? How the hell does that name fit in here?’ he wondered. So he decided to check it out. He entered to see an elderly Chinese man behind the counter. ‘How did this Chinese laundry get a name like “Sigurd Kristiansen’s Laundry”?’ the backpacker asked. The elderly Chinese replied, ‘My name, I am owner.’ ‘Really? How did you ever get a name like Sigurd Kristiansen?’ ‘Many years ago when arrived at this country, was stand in line at Documentation Center. Man in front was big Norwegian. Lady asked him: “What’s your name?” He said: “Sigurd Kristiansen” Then lady asked me: “What’s your name?” I said: “Seim Ting”.’
