Konglish Word For The Week

"Disemploy" - to have one's employment terminated, to be sacked, to be fired, to lose one's position within the paid workforce.

Korean-English, or Konglish, raises its head at our household occasionally. I thought that this one was a gem and just had to be shared.

Licence Plates

Being a bit of a stats man (lover of statistics) I can't help but read the licence plates of cars. I had to laugh yesterday when three cars in front of me was a car with the licence plate "PIGGY". And two cars back in the other lane was one with "MEEOW". I shit you not.
