Ben: Funny Konglish

Nowadays almost people think is funny.

I think I have seen "nowadays" written more times in Korean than the rest of my life combined.

When they write "almost people," what they really mean is most people, not some subhuman group of cloned "nearly" humans that exist only in Korea.

Finally, funny is constantly miss used to when they mean "very fun." As in, "I went to watch the movie "2012," it was very funny. Or, "playing computer games is funny." No matter how many times I explain that "funny does not equal very fun," they will write it week after week. So I've long given up and accepted it. Living in Korea is just more funny that way.
