The K-man's finest hour(s)


#1226

Guys I have a feeling we’re falling for clever Photoshop. Isn’t Diamond Skull actually Kate Bekinsale? And yellow cap looks like Paris Hilton.

The K man is playing us. Or whoever did this poster.

Oh, god! I feel so used… :hushed:


#1228

Have you seen the latest taiwan news?
@Dr_Milker !

But but but…he’s native Hawaiian!! How can he be a white supremacist if he’s Hawaiian?!?
Does this mean I’m going to have to take my dream lover…er idol’s framed picture off of my nightstand? So confusing… So many unanswered questions…and unspeakable urges… :disappointed_relieved:

link?

can’t find that article on Taiwan News


#1231

Found it


#1232

oh God, so he comes from the islands in the middle of the fucking ocean whose judges like to rule that “mainland” US should have open borders because think of the children?

I’m starting to understand.


#1233

I recognized this picture right away. Is Taiwan News so cheap they have to use free stock images?


#1234

that’s a rhetorical question, right?


#1235

Everyone is using free stock images. I try my best to avoid it at work but most people think Commons is heaven sent.

Personally I hate it, has no character. But then I get criticized for asking photographers for specific images.

And the other only option is CNA with its elementary school graduation trip pics style, where everyone poses for the camera and flashes the peace sign.


#1236

Well, I think it’s shameful for a major news organization to be using Pixabay. I know it’s just their website, and just a K-man article, but any self-respecting news agency would shell out if not for Getty Images than for one of the stock image subscription services publishers use. They could at least have chosen a better image. I’ve been seeing that image on crappy SEO promo sites for over 5 years.

Last week, Chinese netizens worked themselves into a foamy froth

All this frothy foam talk really does something for me :face_with_hand_over_mouth::wink:

7-Eleven convenience store written in simplified Chinese characters which read, “Chinese people prohibited from entry and exit” (中国人出入禁止

Why wouldn’t they let the Chinese people leave if they entered the 7/11? Would they have to live inside the 7/11 forever? Wouldn’t they get hungry and miss their families?


#1238

Meanwhile, foreigners aren’t allowed to stay at most hotels in China.


#1239

Will they let you leave if you have already entered them?

EDIT: jokes aside, I’ve never been to China. They really don’t let foreigners stay at some hotels?


#1240

Nor allowed into some bars in Japan.


#1241

Most hotels. At least they let us use renminbi these days.


#1242

They didn’t let me do anything in Japan because I have too many tattoos.

Can’t stay here
Can’t drink here
Can’t swim here
Can’t eat here
Can’t smoke here


#1243

That’s also true for Japanese with tattoos though.


#1244

I have a dream that one day this Japanese nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its tattoo creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all Japanese men tattooed or not are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the irradiated hills of Fukushima, the sons of tattoo biggots and the sons of tattoo shop owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.


#1245

It may have kind of made sense back when only Yakuza had tattoos, but not these days.
