The "Chinese Curse".

We've all heard the "Chinese Curse"... "May you live in interesting times."

I recall reading somewhere years ago, that the Chinese call it the "American Curse".

I also recall reading somewhere, years ago, that it has three parts:
  • May You Live In Interesting Times
  • May You Come to the Attention of Important People
  • May You Be Granted What You Asked For

But now, I can't find online any reference where I may have read these things. It's just too pithy and neat, if I had made them up, I would have claimed attribution.
