Korea Life Blog - Korean Jokes

There was this Spanish guy, this Korean guy and this Russian guy all working for the same construction company. At the beginning of the day the boss comes out and says to the Spanish guy, "You're in charge of the cement."

Then he said to the Russian guy, "You're in charge of the dirt."

Then he said to the Korean guy, "You're in charge of the supplies."

Then he said, "I'm gonna be back at the end of the day to check on your work. It better be good or you're fired."

So they all go off to go get their work done.

At the end of the day, the boss comes back to check on their work. He looks at the big pile of cement and goes, "Good work," to the Spanish guy. Then he looks at the big pile of dirt and says, "Good work," to the Russian guy. Then he couldn't find the Korean guy so he asks, "Where the heck is the Korean guy??"

All of a sudden, the Korean guy jumps out from behind the big pile of dirt and yells, " SUPPLIES!"

This is an obvious poke at the difficulties in which some Koreans have with the differentiation of the English L and R sounds. Of course, I should point out that I can't pronounce the Korean L/R letter and I must sound completely silly. I'm not sure how funny the rest of these jokes are, but you can check them out here: Jokes and humor about Korean people. I looked at a few of them and they seem as harmless as the one above. I was hoping to find more Korean jokes translated into English, not jokes that target Koreans. Any Korean person have a good joke to translate here? Dun' go, Mung is a pretty good one.
