Lesson 6: How Many Cows? 
13th-Oct-2008 01:44 pm
First of all, thanks to everyone who'se entered our competition so far; we have had all types of crazy stuff coming through. In addition to the amazing drawings, people are making Jills out of cloth and lego and god knows what else! An incredible array of creativity on display! I guess people must really want these custom sneakers I'm going to make for the winner, and why wouldn't you, because when you rock these shits you will be the TALK OF THE TOWN

The competition is still WIDE OPEN. We're rewarding creativity as much as, if not more than, technical ability. You've still got until HALLOWE'EN. Don't forget to include your shoe size with your entry!

In other news, new friend jeskabot drew this picture of me marrying a mermaid:



THAT MERMAID HAS GOT EVERY QUALITY I COULD EVER LOOK FOR IN A WIFE



Ok, here's today's lesson. Shall I carry on posting these day by day or would you prefer a big update at the end ofthe week? Let me know. This is the quickest one I've ever done; I had like an hour to make the whole thing. It is pretty jacked.

This was easily the most popular story I've done to date; In every class I taught today the kids actually asked me to go through this story twice, which was pretty cool. After I told the story, I asked the kids questions about what they'd seen, like:

-How many Korean cows were there?
-How many American cows were there?
-How many cows were there altogether?
-How many apples were there? (the apples are not actually mentioned in the story.)

It was fun!



 



Jin-su: Let's count Korean cows!
Eric: Ok!



J: How many cows?

E: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....




E: I have 5 Korean cows!



J: Ok, Let's count pigs.

E: 1, 2, 3, ...



E:There are 6 pigs.

J: No! Eric! There are 3 pigs!





J: Let's count British cows!



J: How many cows?
E: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8...



E: I have eight British cows.
J: Oh, good!



J: Let's count American cows.

E: OH NO! AMERICAN COWS are CRAZY COWS!



J: OH, NO!



J: Eric, no!



E: Umm, delicious!



E: Oh, no! Help me, please!



E: AAAAAAAAARRRGGHHH!



E: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGGHHH!



E: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGGHHH!



BOOOOM!



B: ERIC!! ARE YOU OK?? OHHHHHH MYYYYY GOOOHHHHHHD!!!

J: No, he's dead.



J: Do you like hamburgers?

So the deal with this is there was a food scare in Korea just recently where the news media were called upon to propagate the myth that all American beef was infested with Mad Cow Disease, so that the Korean beef industry wouldn't get marginalized by cheaper American imports. Hence there were protests in the street against the importing of American beef. My friend Chantale even saw a big ad hoarding which was a cartoon of a bunch of Korean people standing firm and saying 'NO' to a boatload of googly-eyed scrawny American Crazy Cows who were about to break into their country. The Crazy Cow has a lot of currency amongst kids here.

I think I'm going to see how much overt anti-capitalist propaganda I can get away with in these before someone says something. I bet it's a lot.

when I was in Japan a couple years ago the big thing was hoof-and-mouth disease. there was a big sensationalist area in customs reserved for those poor saps who tromped through farms (presumably in Britain) and thus had to be disinfected.

Poor Eric. His only crime was that he loved too much.

Your classroom drawings + smoking weed = Match made in heaven. Oh my. I wasn't prepared for the disfiguration of Eric. Genius.

I also vote for day to day updates if it's convenient enough.

P.S. Not to be too presumptous but I wear a women's size 8.5 American

Mmm, exactly how I like my steaks... bloody rare and contagious.

Daily lessons please! Maybe it's just coincidence that you post them around the same time as my daily "touching".

haha what the hell does this mean

Wow, I really don't recall typing that. But either way, it's a compliment!
13th-Oct-2008 05:38 pm (UTC)
daily posts please :)

For some reason crazy mutated Eric reminds me of the movie Slither. Also.. question: Where does Jin-su's hat go when they see the American cow?

He takes it off in disgust. After seeing the true mutated face of capitalism, he renounces all western culture. Which is basically what I'm trying to get these kids to do.

I want so badly to go back in time and be in your class.
14th-Oct-2008 05:28 am (UTC)
TETSUUUUUOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!




I vote for day-by-day. I love these things!
