LARRY KING: Tomorrow night! The whole hour with Shen Shen Mao! Star of Idol of the Celestial Kingdom! From Hunan Province, hello!
CALLER: Am I on?
LARRY KING: You’re on, caller. What’s your question for our guest?
CALLER: I would like to know, sir, if your guest has taken up any hobbies since stepping down from his post?
LARRY KING: Great question. Hu — can I call you Hu? –
HU JINTAO: You may. Although it should be noted that Hu is my last name.
LARRY KING: But it comes first? Don’t get that.
HU JINTAO: Larry, in Mandarin, the family name always goes first.
