It's hard being Asian at Halloween

This came up at a barbecue yesterday - do you think it's frustrating for young Korean children who want to dress up as Elvis, so they put their hair in a big pomp, only to have everyone think they're Kim Jong Il? I would find that very annoying. You also couldn't dress up as the Asian Brian Setzer, because then they'd just think you were Kim Jong Il with a guitar.

These are the issues that keep me up at night.

I'm glad that you spent the last 23 years of your life in persuit of a PHD so that these issues could keep you up at night.

On the other hand, they have their pick of characters from "Kung Fu Hustle."

That's true. An Asian boy can just grow some scraggly facial hair and be asked "Are you Stephen Chow?"

And it beats staying up thinking about where the hell I'm going to work.
