At Least We Know the Korean Guy Doesn’t Hate Chinese People

2 Black teens sit at a table together, comparing the shopping they’ve just done. One gets up to ask for a cigarette from a middle-aged Asian dude sitting nearby. The Asian dude ignores the teen. Black teen #1: Man, I hate Chinese people.
Black teen #2: Yo son, watch what you’re saying. Look around you.
Black teen #1: I don’t give a shit, man! I fucking hate
Chinese people.
Black teen #2: Besides, I’m pretty sure they’re Korean. –Greenstreets, 32nd & Broadway Overheard by: enkie

Woman: Oh God, I can’t believe we’re actually in Manhattan. Don’t call it New York.

Girl: Mom, shut the hell up.
Woman: Language! I’ve got the brochure for the Sex in The City Tour. Do you wanna get a Cosmo? –Penn Station Overheard by: Twalia LaRue

That’s Just Sucking Up to the Barber

Guy: So after my reading, one of the actors was being all nice to me, and wanting to hang out, whatever. I thought he was just being friendly, but then I found out from my friend that in acting school they tell you to do that.
Girl: Do what?
Guy: You know, hook up with up and coming playwrights and directors, so you have contacts. Come to think of it, all my actor friends started being nicer to me after my reading. You guys should be sucking up, too.
Girl: I like your hair. –105th & 5th

Not One As Widespread as Idiocy

Girl #1: They named their kid Lotus?
Girl #2: That’s kind of cool.
Girl #1: How?
Girl #2: Well, it’s got good connotations, you know? I mean, you’d never meet a bitch named Lotus.
Girl #1: Yeah, but…weren’t they, like, a plague? –John Fluevog, Mulberry Street Overheard by: Courtney
