too many trips to the nail salon


I've been getting emails left and right telling me about this video making the YouTube rounds... this comedian Anjelah Johnson does an impression of a Vietnamese nail salon in her routine: Anjelah Johnson - Nail Salon.

I don't quite know what to make of it, mainly because I've got people telling me, "I'm Vietnamese, and I think this is so racist!" but also an equal number of people telling me, "I'm Vietnamese and I think this is dead-on hilarious!"

Personally, I give her props for doing her homework, but I'm never really fan of non-Asians doing stupid Asian accents in their acts, no matter how "dead-on" they think they may or may not be. And come on, the nail salon thing has been done to death.
