Japanese and Korean Are the Same Thing


My son and I are driving through the neighborhood . . . an Asian kid about 12 years old rides by on a scooter. He lives across the street from us but I almost didn’t recognize him because he’s got his hair lightened and highlighted.

“Typical Japanese,” my son says.

“Japanese kids like to highlight their hair?”

“Yeah,” he says, like it’s an obvious question.

“That kid is Korean, isn’t he?”

“Same thing.”
