The Yellow Menace

I’m a big fan of watching “uncomfortable” moments.

I don’t mean “sex in the back of a Volkswagen” uncomfortable (although I’d happily watch that too!), I mean that I enjoy watching cringe-worthy moments.

I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s as simple as just being really fucking happy that it’s not ME.

Anyway, I heard about this one the other day, and it cracked me up.


Isn’t that an absolute pisser?

I can just picture that girl’s parents, pleased as punch with their little wunderkind, sitting back stage rooting their little girl on, and the look of abject HORROR on their faces as their little one embarrasses the shit out of them on national television.

Then of course, I imagine things would get worse when they looked over to the little Asian boys parents, who were probably staring them down like they just planted a burning cross on their front lawn.

Good times.

Oh my. Did you happen to catch the show "Glee" last night? It's a bit 'past my age' to watch, I think, but its from the people who did Nip/Tuck & I love that show. Let me tell you, any parent who watched that with their kid last night, had some uncomfortable moments....funny show.

assume the parents/grandparents have white hooded bedsheets in their wardrobe.
And I don't think that's a girl. Whatever it is, it's pretty fugly.

OMG!!! Where did you find that? It's a New Zealand programme, it used to be on years ago! The man is Selwyn Toogood, he was a TV Icon here! I loved him. The girl's answer was priceless eh? I think I even saw that episode years ago! Toooooo funny. Thanks for the memory mate.
BTW, Selwyn Toogood's voice was instantly recognisable to me.... he's dead now. That is sad.

dizzblnd said...

now THAT is truly funny!

Sue said...

thank you for making me laugh out loud.

Charmaine said...

Ha ha. She sounds like my mother. Only my racist mother from Ireland would have said,
"Ach sure it means the wee divil is a f***ing chink".

Okay, I exagerrate a bit. Okay, I flat out lie.

But I like that about myself.

Tamara said...

Hehehehe... It wouldn't have been half as funny if she wasn't competing against the Asian kid who got the answer right.

Faiqa said...

So, what you're saying is that Chinese people *don't* like it when you call them yellow? Huh. That explains a lot.
