Korean News Station Pokes Fun at KTVU after Southwest Incident
Slothed ^ | 7-23-2013 | James Poling

title was too long:

Do I have to excerpt something so short??

You probably remember KTVU’s royal eff up with reading obviously fake Asian names for the pilots of the Asiana crash. Names like “Wi To Lo” and “Ho Lee Fuk”.

It looks like a Korean news agency is having some fun at KTVU’s expense. After the landing gear failure of the Southwest flight at LGA they showed this graphic with American pilot names “Captain Kent Parker Wright”, “Co-Captain Wyatt Wooden Workman”.

They even went as far as making up fake names for people to interview. Flight instructor “Heywood U. Flye-Moore” and skeptical passenger “Macy Lawyers”.

Well played Korean TV, well played.

Part of Asian Culture is humor with word play and puns.

The screamibng PC lilly white liberals would have you believe all asians are as humourless and dull as they are.

They are hillariously wong...

I watch a lot of Korean TV on the internet with subtitles and some references - of course - just fly right by me. I am sure a lot of our humor does the same thing in other countries.

Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) says that the Chinese pilot who died in the collision, Wang Wei, was known to have challenged US surveillance planes before, but this time Wei—who apparently died when he ejected from his aircraft and was pulled into the EP-3’s propellers—“exceeded his grasp.”

Asian names can be funny to us as I am sure a lot of our stuff translate weird too.

I like a Korean show called “Running Man”. The cast of the show is...

Yoo Jae-Suk (like an Asian stereotype)
Ji Suk-Jin (Not really sure why he is on the show, lol)
Song Ji-Hyo (She might be a ho, but it’d be impolite to mention on a family show)
Kim Jong-Kook (don’t call him a kook, he’d go Sparta on you)
Lee Kwang-Soo (he’s... the tall one)
and two guys who go with nicknames Ha Ha and Gary

Kent Parker Wright is witty. The other name they threw out there fell a little flat.

However, B+ for effort.

lol.

I saw a Korean show and just in passing, literally seconds on screen, was a sign that said “Rocker Room” instead of locker room. So, they know the r/l thing is funny to us english speakers.

‘Twould appear that the Koreans know how to handle humor...and to dish it right back.

Love it.

They are a good deal more mature than our MSM.

And much, much more intelligent.
