"Hey shovelhead!"

In keeping with the angry theme of the week, MadAsian has compiled a list ethnic slurs and their origins (Koreans called "shovelhead" made me laugh out loud), a quiz called "What kind of Asian are you," and the section "You know you're Asian if..." on his website. He's also got a few rants about equality and liberalism.  MadAsian's almost there. I'm feeling his amusing observations about living life as an Asian American. However, he pushes the envelope a little too far at times (the tacky tees he's selling) and seems to be overly frustrated with Asian American women. We're complex, buddy.  Get over it.
