An Agatean gentleman remembered only as '''Mr. Hong''' chose to set up the [[Three Jolly Luck]] Take-Away Fish Bar on the site of a former fish-god temple in [[Dagon Street]] and opened on the night of the winter solstice which also happened to be a full moon (see {{MAA}}) ''and'' a lunar eclipse ({{TT}}). Reports of what happened then are as varied and contradictory as usual from a crowd of Morporkian witnesses, (which included [[Mustrum Ridcully]], who summarised events as "crack-crack-gristle-AAAARGH!") but certainly the shop disappeared, or most of it, along with Mr Hong, or most of him. As nearly as could be determined, he left behind one kidney and half an earhole.
This Agetean gentleman has grown to become the Ankh-Morpork equivalent of a "cautionary urban legend", with several mentions throughout the various books ({{MAA}}, {{J}}, {{TT}}) admonishing people to "remember what happened to '''Mr. Hong'''". You see, it wasn't Mr. Hongs luckiest day when he decided that the night of the winter solstice in combination with a full moon and a lunar eclipse would be the ideal point in time and the site of a former fish-god temple in [[Dagon Street]] the ideal point in space to open his [[Three Jolly Luck|Three Jolly Luck Take-Away Fish Bar]] - see there for further details.


Since then, Mr. Hong has grown to become the Ankh-Morpork equivalent of a "cautionary urban legend", with several mentions throughout the various books admonishing people to "remember what happened to Mr. Hong."
It is unknown if he had a blood relationship to the noble Hong clan of {{IT}}.

This Agetean gentleman has grown to become the Ankh-Morpork equivalent of a "cautionary urban legend", with several mentions throughout the various books (Men at Arms, Jingo, The Truth) admonishing people to "remember what happened to Mr. Hong". You see, it wasn't Mr. Hongs luckiest day when he decided that the night of the winter solstice in combination with a full moon and a lunar eclipse would be the ideal point in time and the site of a former fish-god temple in Dagon Street the ideal point in space to open his Three Jolly Luck Take-Away Fish Bar - see there for further details.

It is unknown if he had a blood relationship to the noble Hong clan of Interesting Times.
