    I was going to say, those names could totally lead to a "Who's on first?" type of situation.

    They were read over the air though at a TV station this morning. The station was (obviously) forced to apologize profusely.

    ^ Same here. The pilots were Korean. And these made up names aren't close to being Korean.

    I think the fact that people said this shit on air... after having it verified (by an unpaid summer intern) by the NTSB is what amused people. the fact that adults (trained in some sort of journalism) that are reporters READ this shit on national television without so much as reading it aloud ONE damn time. I mean, this should have been read (aloud) by at LEAST 5 different people before it went onair. They were just so damn anxious to get the "scoop" that they made assholes out of themselves. they are the jokes, not the pilots... although I hear that Asiana is thinking of suing the station...

    It's media karma for all the times those arseholes have been so hasty to publish details on "fast breaking stories" they've managed to point the finger at an innocent (see: Boston bombing, Sandy Hook)

    How much of a mook do you have to be to say "Sum Ting Wong" out loud - or even in your head! - and not immediately know it's a joke?

    If this plane had flown in from Ireland, someone would have said that the pilots were Phil McCracken, Pat McGroin, and Paddy O'Fernicher.
