the satire behind "korean parents"

A lot of folks were a bit confounded by Randy Newman's "Korean Parents" song that hit the news a fews back. I'll admit, I was kind of scratching my head too. Thankfully, Jeff Chang has a very astute and insightful analysis of the song and its context, as well as some of Newman's other often controversial, satirical work, over at Slate: Korean Parents for Sale. It's a good piece, so check it out.
