WND Delves Into Lame Ethnic Humor With 'Sum Ting Wong' Headline
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Somebody apparently forgot to tell WorldNetDaily that ethnic humor based on derogatory stereotypes stopped being funny a good 30 years ago, if not more.

That would seem to be the logical explanation for why WND headlined a June 17 article "Sum Ting Wong: Feds bust illegals at Chinese restaurants."

The odd point of the article is that it's "bizarre" to go after "Asian restaurants in the sleepy little town of State College, Pennsylvania, the home of Penn State University" when there's an "ongoing flood of illegal aliens pouring across the Mexican border into the U.S." But it comes off as portraying Asians as somehow more desirable immigrants than Hispanics.

That shows that the place where something's wrong is actually WND.
