America’s Cup Confidential: “Team Korea” Has Exactly Zero Koreans On It – How Does That Make Any Sense?Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
Answer: It doesn’t.
Let’s meet the team – there’s a white boy, a white boy, a white boy, a white boy, and a white boy:

Hey, why don’t they call themselves Team North Korea, cause, you know, that would be just as accurate.
Or, indeed, Team Kyrgyzstan, you know, whatever.
(There was an idea to have actual Koreans on Team Korea. First, it was going to be 30% Korean, and then 15% and then after those proposals got shot down we’re back to the original requirement of 0% Korean. And if you think China Team is Chinese, well…)
Oh what’s that, it’s where the boat was made is what counts? But isn’t this a spec race with all the boats basically the same?
The World Wonders.
Now, speaking of Team Korea, let’s check in:
You’ll note that this Tweet was “promoted” by purported Korean Mark Bulkeley, so that his banal message would go out to more than just his few dozen Followers. One could assume that one Markie B. was paying some hard-earned won or quid or whatever they use for money wherever he’s from or pretends he’s from, but he says he Tweets his unsolicited Tweets at no charge.
Perhaps the City and County of San Francisco is picking up the Tweeting bills of all the “professional sailors” involved in the America’s Cup scrimmage races?
Speaking of which, how much is each Sailor costing San Francisco taxpayers? About $100,000, $200,000 each? It’s like welfare for the “sailing community,” huh?
Speaking of which, isn’t the America’s Cup a big disappointment already? I think it is.
So it’s “NASCAR on the bay” complete with faked incidents for the cameras (like last year’s pitchpole near Alcatraz – that’s the first thing they show on the broadcast that nobody wants to pay for) and yet still nobody’s interested.
P.S. Nobody cares about anything related to the America’s Cup, you’ll see. They had a scrimmage down in San Diego not too long ago and nobody showed. Anyway, this whole deal is kind of a fraud. You’ll see.
Here’s the latest idea to get attention from our Funk Seoul Brothers and Sisters in South Korea.
It’s called “Earos” and it was dreamed up by Robert Potter. Check it:
With Earos, you can order more Latisse (aka Bimatoprost)* in comfort:
It’s new, it’s you:
Will it hurt your iPhone’s reception? Don’t know.
Will it keep your valuable brain a significant distance away from your brain-warming mobile? Hell yes.
Maybe you could use this at home or something.
*Speaking of which, here are some of the possible side effects of listening to Brooke Shields about what to do with your eyelid hair. Wow:
- May cause blurred vision.
- May cause eyelid redness.
- May permanently darken eyelashes.
- May cause eye discomfort.
- May eventually cause permanent darkening of the iris to brown.
- May cause a temporary burning sensation during use.
- May cause thickening of the eyelashes.
- It may cause unexpected growth of hair if applied inappropriately, on the cheek, for example.
- It may cause infection if the one-time applicators which come with the genuine product are reused.
- Lashes may grow so long that they become ingrown and scratch the cornea.
- May cause darkening of the eyelid or of the area beneath the eye.
On November 19, 2007 the FDA issued a warning during the seizure of a bimatoprost-containing cosmetic. The warning stated that “the extra dose of bimatoprost may decrease the prescription drug’s effectiveness. Damage to the optic nerve may lead to decreased vision and possibly blindness.”
But aside from that….
A family decision – to buy the new Lexus hybrid or not. Click to expand:
A passionate pink Smart Car Four-Two Passion:
The Scions look like Matchbox Cars, right?
Hands up – who here has a Lexus? The SEMA boys painted this IS350 using the flattest finish known to Man. That’s not primer, it’s paint:
I think the South Koreans are arriving a little late at the boaty chromed-up car party, but anyway, here’s your giant 2010 Hyundai Equus – ask about their bullet-proof model:
A woody Mini Clubman station wagon, of course:
Honda makes jets? Sort of, with a little help from GE. Buy your HondaJet HA420 starting in 2011:
And here’s your new Piaggio tricycle scooter – ask about their hybrid model:
And that’s your San Francisco International Car Show for 2009.
All the models, after the jump.
