Nothing says North Pole and Santa like penguins.

Penguins dressed like Santa at Everland, the amusement park in Yongin that has chosen to ignore that penguins are in fact from the South Pole. Another side-effect of Koreans divorcing Christmas from any meaningful context whatsoever.







HT to ROK Drop and to the TV at my gym. Those penguins may be cute, but are no match for this one:

Would this be classified as a "blatant" attack on our christmas culture? Should these holiday barbarians be shown the error of their ways?

Depends what you mean by "our." You're Canadian, right? Christmas is a uniquely American holiday, and clearly these foreigners don't understand American culture.

Hmm...

By 'American' are you including the USA, or are you just meaning Canada, Cuba, and all south thereof?

Easier than putting a Santa suit on a polar bear. I would rather look at hot babes in Christmas mini-skirts. By the way, I have never seen babes dressed in elf-costumes.

Brian said...

In Korea you mean?

Samuel said...

Yeah, Brian, I would love to see hot Korean models dressed as elves, sitting on Santa's lap, sucking on a candy cane with their mouths open. I think Koreans only associate Santa's red and white with Christmas, and not green of the elf. Anyways, if you find any such pics, post them. There is always room for babes in miniskirts.

Yeah, but that's adorable, really.

Canadian??? Ouch!!! I am born and bred in the MIDWEST! Breadbasket state of Iowa and the redneck state of Arkansas. Of course, by stating that, I may have opened myself up to more putdowns than if I was Canadian. hahaahaha. I think America should adopt Boxing Day as a national holiday like the Canadians though. We could always use another holiday.
