  1. WOW...I feel like I got sucked Into a shaft movie(Richard Roundtree NOT Sam Jackson)Check the white guy on the far left trying to dance "Black guys help the white guys"(Stripes).

  2. See, this is why I love my brother - he annotates his pop-culture references.

    This is how it's done, folks...

  3. OH...and by the way:
    I didn't hear anything hateful OR racist In the lyrics..hell kinda made me want to go learn kung fu.
    And while I'm at It,
    I will NEVER apologize for slavery, I have NEVER owned,bought or sold another human being.why this country STILL takes shit over this I will never understand.
    You want to get mad about It, the country of Mauritania(just google It I had to)slavery was legal until 2007....Sorry all this "I'm offended by something and I'm gonna sue somebody" shit just pisses me off.

  4. I believe the reason the China man had issues is due to "getting lost in the translation". When Simon sang "they were funky China men from funky Chinatown", the china man thought he was saying those fucking China men from fucking Chinatown.

  5. I suppose that's the problem with learning text book English as opposed to learning to speak and READ American, and YES there IS a difference.
    After a brief search I couldn't find a Chinese definition for fuck or funky, maybe It just got lost In translation.
    When Is someone going to discover the Babel fish(The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).

  6. Hmm... this puzzles me. It would be like me being offended by "Turning Japanese". But.. then again I'm not FOB... nor were my parents. Oh.. not the military FOB, the cultural and racist version of FOB.

  7. "Fresh off the boat"? (I had to Google that).

    I had a grandfather born in Sweden, yet I never sent the Muppet Show any hate mail over their numerous Swedish Chef sketches.

    Some folks just got issues, I guess.

  8. Harvey:
    Well... I am quite glad that you had to Google that. And... what colour is Swedish?

    It would be interesting to know if the Chinese gentleman was upset about "Kung Fu Panda".

  9. What color is Swedish?

    Picture a polar bear in a blizzard, then lighten it up a couple shades.

  10. AHHhh...Sweden were like Germany but, without the bad temper.
