Origin ng talinghagang bukambibig na lutong macao

ang ibig sabihin ng talinghagang bukambibig na lutong macao ay isang paligsahan na mayroon nang naka-set na winner bago pa man mag-umpisa ang paligsahan.

Halimbawang gamit sa isang pangungusap:

Lutong macao naman ang labanan ng San Miguel at Purefoods basketball teams.

Saan nagmula ang talinghagang bukambibig na ito? Bakit macao of all Chinese places?

Ito ang nakasulat sa aklat na The History of the Burgis nina Mariel N. Francisco at Fe Maria C. Arriola:

Lutong macao, aftr the quick Chinese method of stir-fry cooking (because ingredients are already pre-cut into small uniform pieces) has become a contemporary term for any pre-arranged deal through bribery -- an alleged specialty of the Chinese. Example: a rigged bidding, basketball game or political election.
