But after the fourth or fifth time I watched this video, I realized what made it so laugh out loud funny. Stupidity, it was stupidity that I found so damn funny. The stupidity of the person who handed that list of names to the anchor woman, the stupidity of the person who called the NSTB and verified the names, the stupidity of the intern at the NSTB who said "Sure, those names sound right to me.", and most of all the stupidity of the anchor woman. It happens in only a quick flash, but at the end of the video there is a look on her face where you know she realizes that she's been punked.
I am so glad that I have convinced myself that laughing at those made up Asian names isn't racist. Now if I can just get that little ditty out of my head that has been running for the last few days.
