"Dim sum, a meal of varied dishes originating in China, is often translated loosely into English as 'a little bit of' what?"

That's the $15,000 question that Karl Allis, aka "Hungus," a restaurant manager at Atomic Cowboy and Fat Sully's, will be asked on the episide of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? that airs this morning at 9:30 a.m. on KMGH, Channel 7.

On Friday's show, Allis made it up to the $12,500 question --"Dubbed by Fortune magazine the 'richest city in the world,' Abu Dhabi is located in what Middle Eastern country? -- and went with the audience to come up with the winning answer of the United Arab Emirates.

Allis still has three lifelines left to come up with the proper answer for the dim-sum question, which should be a snap for a restaurant guy. He'll be choosing between: a) health; b) family; c) heart and  d) joy.

And the answer is?
