flying together in silence for a while, the rabbi leans over and says, "You
know, I've never forgiven you Chinese for what you did at Pearl Harbor."
The Korean looks shocked and replies, "What the hell are you talking
about?!?!? It was the Japanese the bombed Pearl Harbor, not the Chinese. And
besides, I'm not Chinese or Japanese, I'm Korean!"
The rabbi says, " Korean, Japanese, Chinese, what's the
A little while later, the Korean man says, "You know, I've never

So they all go off to go get their work done.
At the end of the day, the boss comes back to check on their work. He looks at the big pile of cement and goes, "Good work," to the Spanish
guy. Then he looks at the big pile of dirt and says, "Good work," to the
Russian guy. Then he couldn't find the Korean guy so he asks, "Where the heck is

day. As he sits down in the plane, he says, "Wow, the seats are really big
here." The person next to him turns to him and says, "In Texas, they
say everything is big."
When Boram finally arrives in Texas, he's a little tired, so he decides to go

says, "Yes; in Texas, everything is big."

him, he says, "Wow, the shotglass is really big!" A person next to him

relieve himself. So he turns to the bartender and asks him where the bathroom
is. The bartender replies, "The second hallway, second door." Boram
thanks the bartender, and stumbles on his way. He's had a few drinks, so he
misses a turn, and then walks into the third door instead. It's a swimming pool,

So there was this guy named Mung, right. He was a pretty miserable guy to start out with. Kids at school made fun of him, his mom made fun of him, even his dog wouldn't play with him. But there was some luck.
One day, he met this girl who he thought was perfect for him. She was made fun of at school, too. because she had a lisp. But when he approached her, she spurned him. This upset him greatly. Even some girl who nobody liked didn't even like him. He was so upset that he decided to go jump off the local bridge.
As he stood at the edge, thinking about his miserable life, the girl saw him standing there. In a last minute attempt to save a life, she shouted out, "Dun' go, Mung!" (Korean translation:
It was the last straw for poor Mung who plunged into the rive
South Korea is gearing up for the World Cup by giving its toilets an urgent
Officials are thinking big about the smallest room, lavishing expensive decor
on lavatories and designing 'themed' toilets in a bid to win the title of
"Finest Rest Room in Seoul".
Korea's "outhouse experience" has long been panned by visiting
Westerners. But the country has now launched the Rest Room movement and is
determined visitors will be bowled over by the standard of its lavatories during
World Cup 2002.
Art shows have even been thrown in lavs, and there is now a guided tour of
the city's top 50 conveniences.
One top toilet is said to have an "urbane image of high class",
with dressing tables, aromatic toilet paper and hair dryers. Another has an art
show, while a government-run loo is designed with a medieval theme and a
"castle motif" .
Plants, colored lighting, ultra-high ceilings, cigarette machines and heavy
steel ashtrays are becoming standard fittings in many conveniences.
Traditional Korean toilets are installed in the floor, requiring an awkward
squatting stance. They also proved too small for tall westerners.
The rest room movement was launched after criticism of its WCs during the
Seoul Olympics, reports the South
China Morning Post. Pyo Hae-ryung, president of the Citizens' Coalition for
Rest Room Culture, says: "The foreigners from the West feel very
uncomfortable about the bad state of bathrooms.
"Also the World Cup is coming to Korea and it would be embarrassing if
our rest rooms were of Third World quality. We are starting to make a major
impact on the public idea of a rest room."
Internet firms are also getting behind the movement. ClickCulture is offering
guided tours of the capital's most pristine toilets.
