So, this Chinese man owns a laudry.  And a white salesman comes in selling laundry supplies.
The laundry owner says not interested, he has a good vendor for laundry supplies.
The salesman says, "but, I promise I can beat his prices! take a look at my price sheet!"

So, the salesman says, "I keep telling you, fluctuations!!! Fluctuations!!!!"
So the owner says,
