Foulmouth Strikes Again

June 11th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana

Angry Asian Man posted this fabulous instructional video, which is part of a series that aids grownup Korean speakers in pronouncing the more, er,  important words of the English language: the bad ones!

Nothing warms my heart more than hearing a Hardass Asian Grownup drop an f-bomb or call someone “you fucking bitch”–or reach my father’s apex of frustration: “Oh, shit” (it only happens when he makes an anomolous mistake, like losing his keys).

And so my only hope is that more Koreans will immerse themselves into this line of study. And that such tutorials will soon be created for ma peeps the Vietnamese, Jen’s peeps the Chinese, and all of y’alls peeps as well!

I also see this tutorial as a bit of a backdoor guide to reading DISGRASIAN, properly prepping little old ladies using umbrellas as parasols and friends from our parents’ singing groups to join us in a dialogue about fucking burritos and declaring the world’s biggest asshole–and, if we’re lucky, helping us cut a few fuckers’ dicks off. That’s the fucking shit!

It’s a generasian bridge, so to speak. And a damn fine one at that.

Nasianal Treasure

Nicolas Cage and wife Alice Kim at the Japanese premiere of National Treasure:

NIC CAGE: Say it again, honey.

ALICE KIM: [long sigh] Okay. Oh Nicky, baby, the movie is so great. Actually, the movie is okay, you are brilliant.

NIC CAGE: Great, thanks. How does it feel to be back in your homeland?

ALICE KIM: You mean Asia?

NIC CAGE: Nippon, baby, land of the rising sun!

ALICE KIM: Nic, I’m not Japanese.

NIC CAGE: What are you talking about? Yes you are. I met you when you were handing me chopsticks.

ALICE KIM: That was a Korean lounge. I’m Korean. Remember when I spoke almost only Korean?


ALICE KIM: That was before your last round of hair plugs. It wasn’t so long ago.

NIC CAGE: But don’t you speak a little Japanese?

ALICE KIM: Um, no.

NIC CAGE: Sure you do.

ALICE KIM: I assure you I don’t.

NIC CAGE: That’s so weird, though!

ALICE KIM: Is it??

NIC CAGE: Yeah! Augh. Oh man, I’m totally hungry, when is this going to be over?

ALICE KIM: You promised that after this we would go shopping.


ALICE KIM: I need a new bag.

NIC CAGE: But you bought a new bag this morning.

ALICE KIM: Do you want another son?

NIC CAGE: I want a sandwich.

ALICE KIM: Just take the picture.
