So, while feeling down recently, I began reading two sites that a dear friend linked me to. If you're a fan of Engrish.com, you may enjoy them as well. They're a collection of humourous and often tear-inducingly sweet communiques with Asian-American parents. I stayed up many hours past bedtime reading all of both.http://www.mymomisafob.comhttp://www.mydadisafob.com
FOB, for those of you not familiar with the terminology, means "fresh off the boat" - it refers to an emigrant, usually from Asia, who hasn't integrated into the local culture very much. Most of the humour factor is from the broken English/lost in translation factor, although some of it is culture clash, generation gap, and overall ludicrous situations. It's also an absolute museum of guilt and PA at times.
I hope that this isn't considered racist in the purview of this forum, and I know I'm taking my chances there, but I wanted to share something that cheered me up immeasurably.
