Default Clean Your Plate

I am not sure if this is funny or not.

I don't think it's racist. I remember my Mom always ranting about the "starving Armenians" to us kids when we wouldn't finish something. Still don't really know what an Armenian is or why they all couldn't just go down the street to McD's or Burger King.

The only way it could possibly be construed as "racist" is if the cartoonist believed that all Japanese people had ample access to food.

I dunno. Did you know that S. Korea sends missionaries to the US to spread the gospel?

They see us as a lost country. True.

Actually, the reverse is true, we have an obesity problem. I've gotta say though, I am starting to see more and more fat Chinese kids in Beijing. I really noticed it my last trip there. Nothing stranger looking than a fat Chinese kid.
