Any use of inappropriate cultural terms or conflation with the original movie is entirely intentional:
The Karate Kid (Jaden Smith) and his Mom (Taraji Henson) are leaving Detroit. Lest you think this is a single black mom/deadbeat dad scenario, we’re told upfront that the Karate Kid’s Dad is dead…period. Detroit is portrayed as a gray, dismal city full of shuttered storefronts. This is America in our continued state of joblessness, America in the 21st century, America on the decline. But China, where they’re headed for Mom’s work, is the land of opportunity, the land of now, the land on the up-and-up, or, as the Karate Kid’s Mom puts it, “a magical new land,” like unicorns live there or something.
The Karate Kid tries out his Mandarin on the Asian dude sitting across the aisle from him on the plane. “Dude, I’m from Detroit,” the Asian dude says. Light laughs from the audience, which is mostly made up of families with tween children and some creepy older loners who probably wanted to be Daniel-san back in the day. My Hardass Asian Mom (HAM) approves of this joke: “Not all Chinese or Asian looking guy speaks Chinese, this is true.”
Meanwhile: Where is my Bananarama remix???

How much do I gotta pay you to order Charles Smith Wines’ “Kung Fu Girl Riesling” in public, with a straight face, without your genitals totally shriveling from shame?
Described by her winemakers as a Riesling that “kicks ass” and contains “delicate aromas of stone fruit, white peach, apricot, Asian pear and white spring blossoms,” Kung Fu Girl retails for a mere $12.
So, you know, I’m not going to pay you that much.
DreamWorks has announced that they are officially working on a sequel to their animasian
money-pooper hit, Kung Fu Panda, with a 3-D sequel slated for release in 2011. Funnyman Jack Black will reprise his role as Po the plucky Panda, and Angelina Jolie her role as the Tigress.
Oh boy! I can’t wait until the release of the next film and am truly looking forward to again seeing Black do…
Reasons why RZA should be an honorary member of the tribe:
The hilarioso fellows at Reno 911 have partnered up with the rocking people of DeclareYourself.com to create a cache of tongue-in-cheek PSAs–challenging demographic groups notorious for low voter turnout (i.e. young people, Asian-Americans) NOT to vote.
Not always, my friends. Not voting is a true disgrace. I believe this girl in a bikini actually votes –she can stay.
See all of the videos here. And if you haven’t registered to vote, redeem yourself by registering now.
Kung-Fu “master” Jackie Chan turns 53 today. Let me first say, Happy Birthday Jackie!
To celebrate Jackoff’s birthday, he’s launched DISCIPLE, a new show on Chinese TV that is a nationwide search for the next Kung-Fu Star.
What the wannabe Jackoff Disciples don’t know is that they’re not only competing in the ancient arts of gong fu, they’re also training to be the next…
Thanks for all your work, Jackoff! It will probably only take two lifetimes to undo the damage. Good job, buddy.
