Am I wrong to think that a vile chinboista who would support the murderous regime in Pyongyang is kinda sorta hot, at least for a politician? She may need orthodontic work, and her ears make her look like the love child of Will Smith and Shrek — Oh, snap! She's Chinbo the Flying Elephant! — but she's cute nonetheless. Just a vile chinboista. (Truth be told, I started to think the same of Christine "I'm not a witch" O'Donnell, who otherwise is a vile Republicanista.)

Thanks for the tip, Anonymous. Actually, though, I covered this nearly three weeks ago. I even had a clever catchphrase of the day: Mad Kul Disease (kul being oysters in Korean).ReplyDelete
ROK Drop only just now posted on it, so that post is getting a bit more traffic.
And in response to your question, like I said at ROK Drop, food caught in the Yellow Sea can be nasty. Even as Korea has cleaned up much of its effluent, China has stepped in to fill the void.ReplyDelete
Anything caught in the Yellow Sea should be heavily scrutinized.
