Asians in the week


Two weeks ago, Sonya Thomas beat her previous world record of 181 wings set last year by downing 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes in this year’s National Buffalo Wings Festival. The 100-pound Korean better known as the Black Widow held true to her name, beating hot dog eating champion Joey Chestnut, who finished in second place with 174 wings – all for a measly $1,500 and $750, respectively.

The proud moment for Koreans aside from women’s golf or the Virginia Tech shooter was quickly overshadowed three days later, when Fox Sports canceled a show that aired the video, “The College Experiment,” where a “comedian” selectively interviewed Asians he knew had English as their second language on the USC campus, mocking their accents. The video has since been removed from the internet.

I might have said it before, but if you’re going to make fun of someone, be smart about it. Be a smart racist, please. Unless your name is Russell Peters, making fun of accents (not to be confused with impersonations) is not going to be funny.

The craziest thing though is my good friend had an unfortunate run-in the same night as this news. Some immature Mexican kid went up to my friend at the gym and said, “Ching chong, ching chong.” Kid, that might have worked 15 years ago. Maybe. But it’s 2011, and you should probably stop visiting your racist, loser older brother in the pen, who’s serving 25 to life for his third strike.

You like what I did there? But seriously, we all know that it’s since been modified to Ching chong, ling long, ting tong. Duh.
