Dong Chim April 29, 2009

Katie here.

Many thanks go out to our dear friends the Mulloskey’s.  They warned us of numerous Korean customs, social tendencies and etiquette prior to our departure from Canada.  In retrospect, the warning that I am most grateful for thus far is that of the dreaded ‘Dong Chim.’

Dong Chim is roughly translated as poop needle.  It is an act where the performing party clasps his or her hands together so that the index fingers are pointing outwards and then sharply attempts to insert them into the anal region of an unsuspecting recipient.  That is the nice way to put it.  The not so nice way is…well…kids shove their fingers up your ass!img_61171  This picture is of two of my students doing a demonstration for our readers.
 
Dong Chim sounds terribly awful and could be considered sexual assault, but is viewed as a harmless gag, similar to a wedgie, wet willy or purple nurple. 
 
In English academies, Korean students take the liberty of embarrassing a completely unsuspecting English teacher with a little two-fingered poke to the anus.  The English teacher is immediately shocked, embarrassed and powerless. The laughter from the entire class is enough indication that the act which has taken place not only violates your most intimate personal space but is also applauded by every other child watching. 
Having prior knowledge of what was sure to come, Jordan and I were fortunate enough not to have experienced this classroom embarrassment.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I have since been lucky enough to experience this horrific act,  but we’ve been on the lookout since day one and have thwarted many, many attempts.  Any time a child is behind me, or even walking toward me, my hands immediately cover my behind for protection.  It is an ongoing survival game, and it is every bum for themselves.img_6118
They even have online ‘Dong Chim’ games that you can play here.
I have heard that there is also a statue of two children playing the game.  I’m not sure where it is, but I will find it.  It is probably in between the statue of a man hocking a loogie and a Korean woman hitting on a white guy.
One day Jordan and Bob were spending some quality time together waiting for the other children to finish washing their hands, when Jordan started to poke Bob in the stomach with his fingers in an attempt to tickle him. Bob started off by trying to block these advances but then opted to simply turn around and bend over in hopes of being the lucky recipient of a Dong Chim. Needless to say, Jordan recoiled in horror and the poking game ended then and there.
 
You know what the only thing worse than a Dong Chim is?…The dreaded reverse Dong Chim.
Think about that for a second.

Stay away from me when you get back from Korea.

I’m speechless. There’s so much I want to say, but can’t right now. Just thinking about it makes me feel like I got Dong Chimed.

Brilliant Post!!!!!! You have to get that T-shirt! Seriously excellent reporting here Katie! This story had it all: Anal poking and Jordan being embarrassed by children.

4. Mom - April 30, 2009

I’m SO proud of you! I’m so sorry – as your Mother I feel I have failed you! I totally forgot to mention this ‘little life lesson’. ( Where did you come from anyway????) Loads of love, Your M.

Speechless Totally Speechless

That is all
P. S. I too will be staying away from you all when you return

The reverse Dong Chim? What? Somebody pokes you in the eye???

There are so many things that are going to be left un-said by everyone reading this post.

Extra points for the photo of Katie getting dong-chimed and even more for her smiling in it.

9. fink - April 30, 2009

Nothing new here… I’ve been blocking Jordan’s Dong Chim attempts for years only he called it something else and i’m not sure he used both index fingers.

Don’t worry Jordan, I will not tell everyone about your Chiming adventures in Vegas!

The crack research team at the DML has found the statue.

Enjoy!

12. Danielle - May 7, 2009

What does one say to that? Katie, sorry to say but from the smile on your face one could say that you don’t mind the”Dong Chim”. Where do these Koreans come up with this stuff.
Well at least we all know to watch are backs or should I say butts when you guys get back! Keep laughin….

Jorkat, I hope you will be participating in Oscar’s World’s Longest Dong Chim Chain event next month (see previous link). Being part of the world’s longest train of people sticking their fingers up eachother’s asses will be a fond and timeless memory you can pass on to your grandchildren.

15. Dyson - May 14, 2009

I am flying to Korea for this. The fingers in asses here just isn’t cutting it.

laughed so hard – so accurate.
A korean woman hitting on a white guy? I’ve never seen that happen. The white guys usually flock in droves around the Korean girls while they giggle. Also looking for the statue of the korean man pissing or puking into a sewer grate. Fabulous blog.
