AN insult driven takedown of “Korea has four seasons”
« on: June 30, 2020, 09:31:06 am »
Something that may appeal to both the light-hearted posters and the aggressive posters alike: insult Korea’s pride in their weather patterns. We all know the seasons here never quite live up to the hype. I’ll start.

Korea, your monsoons are weak and timid.

My seborrheic dermatitis produces more white flakes than your winters.

Spring has sprung and it lasted 6 days

Fall is here! Let's go to Naejangsan and fight off the hordes!
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

In Korea, insults are always better when they're in the form of the traditional Japanese haiku!

*Ahem*

Korean seasons suck,
The summers are a bummer,
Winter snow - no luck.


Viewing cherry blooms
In the blossoming spingtide
...through thick smoggy plumes.

There was a young man from Nepal
He went to Seoul in the fall,
His lungs filled with dust
He turned into rust
And said ‘Next year, Senegal’!

The haters here are a bore
So dumb that they do ignore
Of its seasons not so great
Korea indeed has eight

Forget me not the Dusty
Summer Heat does bring musty
Come then the endless Fall Rains
Bone Cold be my final pains

Just wanna point out that I actually love Korean summers!
... but the opportunity to indulge in insulting poetry is just too good to pass up!  :laugh:

I suck at poetry, but I want to try.

Maybe after lunch.

The haters don't understand the reasons
For Korea's hype about its seasons
The tourists that tend to show
Have never even seen snow
Or even trees getting their leaves in.

Not sure how writing in verse became a requirement (kyndo?), but I’m liking it. CO2 definitely has to work on his rhyme scheme though, and some might take issue with his formatting. I’ll try my hand.

For your muggy-ass summers you pay the price;
Lest I keep smelling like kimchi fried rice,
Start stocking your shelves with Old Spice, for Christ!

Being Canadian, something that really blew my mind was having a noob Cali arrival ask me "Kevin, what is a good snow hat?"

You could lock me in a room for ten years and make me think of synonyms for toque and I would never think of snow hat. hahahaha

Korea has four seasons
But like their K-pop
Neither rhyme or reason
To say it ain’t so
Like the heavenly Dokdo
Is considered K-treason

Omnipresent in every season
Is something unmistakably Korean
On every street
In heat and sleet
A smoker's butts and internal leavins

toque
a hwat? where i'm from that's called a beanie or maybe a winter hat. i had to look up toque which, on wikipedia, has several usages: culinary, judicial, academic, heraldic, athletic, and .... Canadian

but yeah snow hat would trip me up too

Not a haiku, but honestly I love the spring here. Where I lived in the US, cold weather often lasted well into April and even the start of May. Believe it even snowed in the second week of May this year!

Here even in March it’s usually sunny and pleasant. No need to wait until May
