I don't watch TV cause I don't have a TV at home. I'm more a Netflix person and a magazineworm. But this TV clip I found on the internet really cracked me up and got me rolling on my carpet with tears. This is so devilishly funny and yet the facts are so true. I like the way they imitated the instant translation I often saw on the Chinese government diplomatic press conferences. Also, the way they spoof the Chinese culture of using lots of indirectness and the Chinese way of translating American slang, are just so funny!! ( Chinese like to use metaphors in conversations and ask "what does this mean ?" when they really want to add a note of criticism and reprimand.) My encounter with the American humors is one of the very amazing life experiences I have in this foreign country. I have to give Kudos to the creative folks at NBC who put together such an entertaining act to give me some laughs in my lonely single life. Love it.
I'm 5 feet 7 inches tall Asian female, 115 lbs, attractive, educated. I'm classified by the U.S. government as a "non-resident alien". I am stranded here in Los Angeles, the eligible bachelor desert. I'm sent here to build up the U.S. economy with my professional skills and education that my home country gave me. I will be here until my contracted duty is fulfilled, until I finish my job and pull out of the U.S. of A, I'm splitting my paycheck with Uncle Sam and supporting American citizens' grandparents with my social security contribution...(I am told only U.S. citizens can receive this when they are 62...but then, why am I required to contribute??? ) Yes, I'm single in this lonely planet called Los Angeles. By the way, have the eligible single bachelors gone extinct here just like the dinosaurs? Contact me if you spot any of them.
