kay: (talking about something she saw on facebook that was referencing those snickers commercials - y’know, the whole you get mean when you’re hungry sort of thing. she mentioned that she’d seen one using a photo of Kim Jong-Il, saying something along the lines of “wow you’re such a dictator when you’re hungry, eat a snickers!” and then after he’s ate the snickers, the picture is of a happy Psy)
all my coworkers: lols wow that’s hilarious!!!!!1
me: um. actually. Kim Jong-Il is from North Korea, Psy is from South Korea, that makes no sense…
coworkers: (they either throw their hands up in the air, roll their eyes, or give me snooty looks)
my boss: (in an exasperated tone of voice) what’s the difference?!
THE DIFFERENCE IS A WHOLE COUNTRY YOU IGNORANT MOTHERFUCKERS
I’m good now! I mean, the first situation was almost a decade ago, and the more recent of the two was still about five or six years ago. So I’ve had a lot of time to come to grips with what happened and it’s all good.
But thankyou, darling!
