You Want The Funny?

May 29, 2009

Perhaps beginning a new Friday tradition, we’ll be posting one thing that will make you somewhere between LOL and ROFL under this headline each week.

Rhett’s blog has been featured here once before, but I just couldn’t contain my effusive man love for this post:

Students and teachers alike call him ‘Retarded Boy’ in Korean as if it were his name when you’re not around.  He doesn’t seem to mind.  In Korea, people lack any pretense about political correctness or niceties in playing the shot from where it lays.  Mentally disabled kids are retarded, under-achievers are Bong-chong-ee (loosely, airheaded morons), delinquents are fuck-ups.  You could never get used to the last one.  You nearly spat green tea all over yourself when your principal apologized for the English scores on the last test: ‘Teacher, many of our students are fuck-ups and don’t score well.  I’m sorry that they do not perform better.’  Students and teachers alike use the N-word to talk about Obama, but not in a mean way.  You’ve tried explaining that this is completely unacceptable but they won’t listen (when you told the anecdote about the Heckler and Koch MP5SD3 submachine gun incident the first time you were in New York City, they might have understood that it’s a bad idea to wave that word around).  They raise middle fingers with impunity and say ‘Oh shit!’ every time you turn around.  The bell rang?  ‘Oh shit!’  Your pencil lead broke? ‘Oh shit!’ You have to tie your shoe?  ‘Oh shit!’  You went to a play the other day and the lead actor called his friend a motherfucker in front of 83 middle school students.  No one batted an eyelash.

If you can handle the funny, the rest of Rhett’s plea for help afternoon.
