What Would A Fucktard Do?

I was looking through my photos and my photo albums for any pictures I could use for a Mook Of The Week story, but alas, I have no more that I can use.
So I will have to describe the mookish behaviour that Flint and I experienced.
One of the things that mooks and fucktards in Korea do when they see a foreigner is to stare like a slack-jawed yokel. I can't tell you how many times I have seen some old ajussi or ajumma stop in their tracks, let their mouth hang open and stare, like they see something green, or you're a martian, or you've got a point on your head.
Even the children do this. I've even seen infants stare at me with a completely blank expression on their face. Their bodies go completely still as they stop whatever they're doing. The Koreans have a group mentality, and it seems to me to be something akin to a hive mind, like bees, or ants, or the Borg.
I always think that someone who stops and stares like this has blown a fuse, and they're communing with the group mind to retrieve any information about the strange apparition before them.
It must be so confusing for them to see a person of another colour, without black hair or eyes. You would think they'd be used to it by now, but the primitive and xenophobic bile spewed out by fucktards like Herr KKKonsoleman at KKKorean Sentry shows that they have a long way to go.
But it does have an amusing side.
I remember one time when Flint and I were dining at a galbi restaurant near his place. It had a glass front, and we could see new customers as they approached. But this one mook could not see us apparently, because it wasn't until he opened the door that he realized who and what we were. He stood there like a typical SJY, holding the door open.
Flint and I could see his wife coming along behind him at a respectful distance.
As she got to the door, her mook of a husband finally came to life. He let go of the door, shutting it in her face.
What would a fucktard do?
Amuse us greatly, for one thing.


  1. My back was to the door so I only got to see the aftermath ... but it was funny. :)

  2. "You would think they'd be used to it by now...."

    While I agree with most of your post, I was a little irked by this one, Stig. They should be used to it by now? How long has it been since foreigners regularly lived in Korea? 50 years at most? This is a really ignorant statement considering how long it took the UK to accept their own minorities, and the same goes for the US. People still stare and point and make comments in parts of America, and the Asians have been here since the 1800's.

  3. Anonymous,
    Sometimes I despair of the human race. How far we have come, and how far we have yet to go.
    When I was in Korea, I saw most everybody had a car, a cell phone with ALL the bells and whistles, and the highest penetrtation rate of internet access in the world.
    And yet...
    With all this at their disposal, they have yet to learn the lessons of tolerance.
    The fact that others do it too doesn't excuse them. It just gives them company.
    If people don't speak out, and point to gross injustice, ignorance, and just plain hatred, where would we be?
    Nazi Germany, I guess.

  4. No one is saying you shouldn't point it out. That's cool. It's good. I was only annoyed by that one statement you said. In my opinion, that's a bit of a hypocritical statement coming from a Brit.

  5. Stig is British? That is news to me.

  6. My apologizes, I swear I saw a post here that said he was going back home to the UK or whatever. My bad, yo.

  7. No worries ... we all makes mistakes. Just don't call him late for dinner ... no telling what he might do. ;)
