Just so you have a frame of reference when laughing at Asians for butchering the English language:

I am at an online conference for one of the schools where I teach. A guy from the student help center came in and posted this quote from Edward George Bulwer-Lytton (If you're a writer or a diehard Peanuts fan then you're already laughing):

"The man who succeeds above his fellows is the one who early in life clearly discerns his object, and towards that object habitually directs his powers."


If you didn't know, Edward George Bulwer-Lytton is credited with the singularly bad beginning line of a novel: "It was a dark and stormy night."

I'm still chuckling. It's humor on the order of Japanese humor - I watched tennis bloopers that were the same. The audience and my mother went all rofl and I saw nothing. Turned out that the two opponents were sitting together and nudging one another - something that's never done. The opponents sit on either side of the judge, ostensibly so that they don't fight or harm each other between sets. You have to know the rules to get the humor.
