i work with a naturalized korean american engineer with a great sense of humor. when he first came to america, he didn't speak engrish that well but understood it spoken to him well enough. when a bunch of guys took him to his first yankees game, they teased him about hot dogs, ya know, about the whole thing with koreans eating dogs. so he acted very enthusiastic about getting some to eat, and when they handed him a hot dog he refused it, saying he's sorry, but he doesn't eat that part of the dog...
