  1. Funny / horrifying story about me and Sixteen Candles. I work for a technical writing / marketing writing company. I had to track down pictures of “successful men” on istock photo. I found a few and emailed them to our graphics guy with the following statement, “Will any of these oily bohunks work?” Imagine my abject HORROR to find out that oily bohunk is a pejorative term for eastern Europeans. Damn you 16 Candles. Damn you.

    1. Heather,

      There is nothing more horrifying than an insulted Slav. Consider yourself lucky; far less triggered World War I.

      I am also shocked that John Hughes would resort to such a racially insensitive comment.

      Thanks for listening.
