Hey guys can we all just agree to be really glad Ronaldinho isn't Japanese?

B-b-b-but Nabisco, what about that guy who plays for the Japanese national team who actually is Brazillian? Ronaldinho could EASILY be Korean.

Scik Mouthy, Thursday, 22 March 2007 18:54 (7 years ago) Permalink

Japanese? Explain.

Hahaha okay, failure to get that joke completely invalidates the opinion of anyone who thinks this bottle opener is hilarious.

Actually I can't tell if Nick got the Japanese joke or not: Nick, did you get the Japanese joke or not?

I'm not entirely sure now.

People have been taking the piss out of Ronaldinho's teeth since forever, including people who love and admire his talent. No other black man in world football that I'm aware of has anyone taking the piss out of his teeth. The bottler opener has NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE. It's all about finding a flaw in a talented rich hero. I can understand people with pronounced teeth being offended by this (at the end of the day laughing about buck teeth is a playground bullying tactic) but I really don't get that people think there's a racist motive.

People have been mocking footballers and their appearance for as long as I can remember. It's all down to taking down yr idols, people with a talent and wealth that you envy.

"Englishes" look at Ronaldinho Bottle Opener and say "haha big teeth", and what looks at it and says "Golliwog" - yet he thinks other people are racist.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THERE'S A RACIST "MOTIVE" THERE IS A GIGANTIC BODY OF RACIST ICONOGRAPHY THAT THAT BOTTLE OPENER FITS PERFECTLY INTO JESUS CHRIST I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS

"I've got this uncle, Uncle Leo - every time he sees a bottle opener with big teeth, he thinks it's anti-semitism."

there are three types of people in this life:

1. people who didn't know Ronaldinho is mostly famous for having massive big gums 'n' teeth (being the best footballer in the world comes a close second) and therefore can be forgiven for thinking the bottle opener is racist as long as they now rescind their views in light of this new information,

2. people who, in full possession of the denticular (warning: may not be real word) facts, believe this bottle opener to be racist, and who are consequently just plain wrong, and

3. people who think this is a quality item celebrating the gigantic gnashers of a certified genius, albeit one who has a tendancy to showboat instead of, you know, just getting the job done.

Roberto Spiralli, Thursday, 22 March 2007 19:17 (7 years ago) Permalink

they've made a product that resembles a canonical odious racist image--again, it was my first association upon seeing the bottle-opener

I have to say, it wasn't mine. I saw Ronaldinho as a bottle opener, and LMAO. Because I didn't even THINK it was in any way racist I showed it to my (black) co-worker and he also laughed too hard, again not seeing how it could be racist. Maybe it's just cos us Britishers know Ronildinho and his massive teeth better than the USers.

showboat

Yeah okay Nick if you're blissfully unaware of racist caricatures of bucktoothed east Asians (reaching their apex during a war I'm pretty sure British people remember) then it's kind of hard to take you seriously as an even-handed judge of bottle openers versus historically racist representations.

nabisco, Thursday, 22 March 2007 19:19 (7 years ago) Permalink

maybe british people are just stupid????

Mr. Que, Thursday, 22 March 2007 19:19 (7 years ago) Permalink

haha 'showboat' was an obvious trap there

onimo, Thursday, 22 March 2007 19:20 (7 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's the ticket dude. Good thinkin'!

I couldn't find any bottle openers for this guy:





If any of the British don't know who John Elway is, suffice to say that it was serendipity that he played for the Denver BRONCOS.

"Hi, my name is Ronaldo and I was famous for being a badly-toothed footballing genius from Brazil before he was. hence the silly bit at the end of his name."

No that's where I was - the suggestion that it might be more complex than that was what had me confused.

I can't believe Dan picked up on the 'Show Boat' reference I'd shoehorned in to signpost my hidden racist agenda. Or not so hidden, as it turns out.
