A friendly FYI from Big Brother

February 27th, 2011 · 74 comments

At Joanne’s office in Lancashire, England, her team had a temporary agency administrator working on-site with them for a few days. Well, “working.” Joanne says her boss was well-aware of what this fellow was actually up to, but rather than report him through the official channels, decided to drop him a little hint instead. (No word about how the lucky employees seated next to him felt about that decision.)

      “The Orient is a term which means “the East.” It is a traditional designation for anything belonging to the Eastern world or the Far East, in relation to Europe. In English it is a metonym describing various parts of Asia. It was also used to indicate the eastern direction in historical astronomy as the adjective Oriental.”

    • #8.5   JetJackson

      Things you ‘hear’ can often be unreliable. A bit of googling (much more reliable I will have you know) reveals that whilst Oriental is considered perjorative in the US it is not considered so in many other parts of the world – notably British English where it is an acceptable adjective. Given this note originates from Lancashire I stand by my advice to silly sausage.

      In the UK, “Asian” is generally assumed to mean people with their roots in the Indian subcontinent (as this is the largest group of Asian immigrants to have settled in the UK — although many of them came by way of East Africa, rather than directly from Asia).

      “Oriental,” when it is used, means people from Japan, China, Korea, etc. However, it’s a bit of a stretch to call it “acceptable.” It does sound old-fashioned, and it implies a certain amount of alienation from the group you’re talking about. It’s rarely if ever used in formal contexts.

      JJ,
      Well, with you being what some Brits call an Antipodean, I can more or less dig where you’re coming from. Without knowing the exact starting point on your big island (eat your heart out, Hawaii), it’s hard to know just where you’ll pop out from if you survive the journey through the middle zone…holes from Perth go through to Bermuda, while starting in Melbourne winds you up in the Azores. Rather than going all the way through, maybe you should double back after digging a bit, dig a 90-degree spur tunnel, and let the language police that are hot on your trail take a trip to the molten middle.

      CB,

      1) Yes, Orientals can still say “Occidental”, but only if they are in the insurance bidness or blogging about severe post-root-canal pain without the aid of a spellchecker.

      2) According to new regulations, old Social Studies textbooks (or even older, preunification books on the subjects of History and Geography) must be recycled and made into toilet paper which is donated, via a USAID program, to the island of Santorini. This is a clear and egregious case of corporate welfare, since, although the paper is free, Rubbermaid is the only toilet-paper-receptacle vendor approved by USAID and the local government of Santorini, and they charge through the nose for those.

      3) Given the success of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, do you think they should try and market a green citrus-based product called “Blimey, Limey !” ?

      4) I hope your Thai-twins are people and not a couple of conjoined cats. Otherwise your pets (companion animals) might have the same problem as the child raised by a Move On man and his Log Cabin Republican partner…their Left Paw didn’t know what their Right Paw was doing.

      Actually, now that I think about it, I wonder if “Oriental” doesn’t have something to do with how we orient the start of the day on planet Earth, given where the international date line is.
      I mean, our day is oriented by that line, so making that the start point should confer a meaning of prominence to the people living in the “Oriental Time Zone” or starting point, no?
      Again, no research, just wondering if that could be where this comes from.

      CB,

      Per the occasionally successful Wiki page on/for/about Asia:

      The term “Asia” is originally a concept exclusively of Western civilization.[6] The peoples of ancient Asia (Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Persians, Arabs etc.) never conceived the idea of Asia, simply because they did not see themselves collectively. In their perspective, they were vastly varied civilizations, contrary to ancient European belief.[6]……..
      The ideas of Occidental (form Latin Occidens ‘setting’) and Oriental (from Latin Oriens for ‘rising’) are also European invention, synonymous with Western and Eastern.[6] Reid further emphasizes that it explains the Western point of view of placing all the peoples and cultures of Asia into a single classification, almost as if there were a need for setting the distinction between Western and Eastern civilizations on the Eurasian continent.[6]

      So, we (the perhaps less varied civilizations [or "civilizations", for the hair-shirt crowd] who typically think of ourselves as “Westerners”) have been using Occident/Orient terminology since long before the IDL, which was legally established only in 1917 (trusting Wiki). The question that occurs to me is whether any of those vastly varied cultures the PC police insensitively lump into “Asia” have similar East/West terminologies based on a need for setting the distinction between Western and Eastern civilizations. What if some of them thought of themselves as Westerners ? Thailand is west of Japan (although not as much as your average Social Studies student might think), so might they not think of folks in Hawaii as “Orientals” from the Far East ? It’s a question that cries out for assistance from native botanicals and an afternoon of studying M.C. Escher’s prints.

      Actually that second curve was intended to be a knuckleball, which reminds me to thank you for keeping cricket terminology from creeping into the “pitch” thread a few days ago. When the terms “pitch”, “fast ball”, and “slow ball” suddenly get mixed up with “bowling”, it makes my head spin, much like it does while reading the following “explanation” of some of that game’s mechanics:

      A left-handed bowler who uses the leg spin action naturally bowls the ball so it spins in the opposite direction to a right-handed leg spinner. Such a bowler is not called a leg spinner, but a left-arm unorthodox spinner. Such spinners are also sometimes colloquially called Chinamen, since the first notable practitioner was of a Chinese background. The leg spin action itself is often called wrist spin, since most of the spin is imparted by the wrist. Both leg spinners and left-arm unorthodox spinners are wrist spinners.

      *Apologies in advance to Jet, Rose, and any others who night be offended by my pretending to be addled by the above transparent prose.

      ** I suspect that your humour batting average is substantially above what most would call “occasionally successful”.

      Jimmy James,

      The ‘limey’ bit was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, as I hope was your use of ‘naval’ oranges, which, with the possible exception of products of shipboard horticulture, are called, in U.S. English anyway, ‘navel’ oranges. Greeks (because it’s their language) and foppish fans of James Joyce (for reasons that are all too fathomable) may toss around the word “omphalos”, but you’ve got about a Chinaman’s chance in Hell of hearing one of them say ‘naftikos’.

      Speaking of Chinamen…
      1) If you weren’t referring to my ‘use’ of the word in quoting a website devoted to cricket, what were you referring to ? I did a ‘Find’ search on this page and, except for our posts, came up empty on ‘china’ and ‘dude’, so I’m scratching my head a bit (if that’s still an acceptable phrase).
      2) If you were referring to the above, please tell me how you were apparently able to post your admonishment 96 minutes before I hit the Submit button on my end. At least one Enquiring Mind wants to know.

      @Odious: it already is in some circles. Some Asian Americans resent being called just “Asian” (it gives an implication that they are foreigners when they are Americans). Most people would call a black person “African American” but that’s as far as it goes… Hispanics are often lumped together as “Mexicans” regardless of their real country of descent, and almost never “Mexican/Honduran/Peruvian/etc Americans” at all.

      The reason we are called “African Americans” is because there really is no way to know what nation state we come from. We’ve been forced to claim the entire continent as a result. I’d love to be a Nation-American like Irish-Americans and everyone else, but that wasn’t a part of the business model of the slave trade. As a result of a few hundred years of interbreeding with whites and Africans descended from many different tribes, we have become a distinct race of people. A people both culturally and genetically (as well as aesthetically) different from our African brethren.
      Count your blessings if your heritage has not been stolen from you.
      And maybe understand just a little what some people have lost and still survived, in fact, in many cases prospered and contributed greatly.

      BTW, stop calling Barack Obama an African-American if you insist on making distinctions. He’s a Kenyan-American. His father was from Kenya, his mom American. He was born in Hawaii. He has no historical ties to American slavery (his dad came to America in the 1950s and missed all of that fun) and knows well from whence he comes. ;-)

      Can’t speak for other countries, but in the USA most people say Asian instead of Oriental. Usually, the older someone is, the more likely they are to say Oriental. I’ve never really understood how Oriental came to be thought of as racist.

      Of course, back home, we don’t use either. Because we say Japanese, or Okinawan, or Chinese or Korean or whatever.
      Because in Hawai’i we can actually tell what everyone is. (unless they’re haole, then we have no clue. )

    Response via email:

    Thank you for your kind notice of my diligent work in securing big tittied, slutty Asian babes for your upcoming trip to Singapore.
    I’ve been assured they are all virgins and under age fourteen as per your request.

    Please be advised that I will need more lead time to ensure such accommodations in advance of your scheduled trip to Las Vegas, as virgins are hard to come by in that locale.

    Always at your service,
    Corporate “Relations” Department

    I gotta ask – how does someone NOT assume their email & web use is being monitored at work?

      You’re an elf. You know how Santa works…he knows if you’ve been bad or good, now we all know how he knows!

    @CantzB I’ve noticed you bombard each new post with multiple comments attempting humor that occasionally succeeds.

    Are you that Tosh.O guy?

      @epiphany, what was I thinking?! Telling jokes on a humorous website…and spelling other people’s names right? :-P

      It’s about time someone mentioned this problem.
      Also, emoticons don’t add to the humor atttempts.

      It’s about time someone was given a reality check…

      Meat/poison. Fortunately, you don’t make the rules here. :roll: :evil: :-P

      Don’t spend too much time on the internet. Tends to give you the false sense that you have some.

      Kerry can block me any time she likes. Thus far she hasn’t, so sit back and enjoy hating the ride. ;-)

    Well, you have to at least give them credit for not reporting it for criminal activity or anything. What better way to make laughter out of an embarrassing situation?

    • #19.1   FeRD bang

      No, *you* have to give them credit for that. WE only have to point out that there’s nothing criminal about viewing porn websites. Nor about misusing your employer’s computer in that way. (It can get you canned, escorted off the premises, heck probably even sued… but that still doesn’t make it illegal!)

      …Wait. How does a criminal defense lawyer not already know that? No matter, though — I’m sure it in no way reflects badly on your professional skills. Best of luck to you!
