The Sad Implications of an Hilarious Photo

Posted in 'Westernization' of Korea, Comparative by 노강호 on April 6, 2011

ha ha! Excellent, if not ironic

This is too funny to be true!  Should I even find it funny?  Before I suppress the urge to rant about cultural contamination, I have to consider it either posed or possibly taken anywhere in the world where a few Asian kids have gathered. Sadly, it looks like it could actually be a Korean elementary school. The more au-fait the former ‘Hermit Kingdom’  becomes with the West, the more I am exposed to language such as ‘puc’ or ”puc you,’ all uttered with the typical Korean kiddy innocence. I am waiting for the first time I hear the most offensive of all four letter words, which as yet I doubt have ever been uttered on Korean soil.

    Yeah, it’s photoshop. I remember seeing it a few years ago. Kind of funny though.

    Either that or the Dead Kennedy’s have caught on in a big way.

    Maybe you can check this video http://youtu.be/ONIzDOzx_GE and change your mind about this word 😛

      Great video! I actually use the word to excess – being an ex-military trooper. In Britain there is a saying, ‘to swear like a trooper.’ I can use the word to great effect.
