    I laughed about the “Those are Chinese names, not Korean names!”

    Years ago, a friend of my Vietnamese roomate called an left a message on the answering machine. I listened to it–it was a mix of Vietnamese and English (“Vietlish”).

    I remarked that it sounded like someone was tuning an AM radio. “I saw Mark this morning and he said–Weeooo yow oin–so I told him–yeow wa noy ooo–and then he said–yoo ow wee oy…”
