The Kimchi Wars
Chinese cabbage has been the name for the main ingredient for the Korean side dish kimchi. But now Koreans are establishing sovereignty over what they eat by having an international naming organization almost decide to call it “kimchi cabbage.”
Of course, there are grounds for the name change with the change in appearance, but Chinese netizens are upset at the adjective indicating the nationality of the vegetable being withdrawn and are showing their displeasure.
Fucking fantastic, isn’t it. Of all people, the Chinese being upset at being ripped off.
The country that couldn’t eat a bowl of rice unless it was a forgery, getting upset about a vegetable Mao probably doesn’t let them eat anyway.
This is the same country that completely ripped off the BMW X5, BMW took ’em to court over it…
The same country that bought Korea’s Ssangyoung Motors, then subsequently dismantled the company and effectively stole the engine technology.
The same country that STX invested heavily in, and the dodgy bastards cut corners left right and centre while passing off inferior-grade workmanship as the real deal.
And then wanted to renegotiate the contract in their favour.
The same country that thinks it has a Stealth fighter jet.
And they’re pissed off about kimchi cabbage.
It’s like a boxer complaining he got punched.
It like water bitchin’ about being wet.
Ding ding a ding ding ding ding dong.
Get fucked, China.
