Had just logged on to post the same link. Probably too soon and childish humour. However...still got tears in my eyes.
Lindy's saying this is genuine and an apology has been issued - I thought it was hilarious but a spoof, anyone know for sure?
Excellent peice of casual racism. Do they not read the stuff first?
Oh dear. Very funny. Can I give 5* ?
Wouldn't describe it as racist, TBH - inappropriate, embarrassing, offensive, too soon, etc - yes, but it's just playing with names not implying inferiority or such.
Hat-tip to Lindy for hearing about it, too.
The talk of casual racism reminds me of this.
BTW not offended by the implied racism just amazed that the newsreader assumed all Chinese had silly names and didn't stop to think. American - think. There are 2 words you don't often see together.
Reminded me of this - probably did the rounds on here at the time, but that was before my time on here began;
