A Second Look: Anatomy of Misinterpretation

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

We needed Iraqi hordes to replace the Evil Empire, and now we need the Invading Japanese to replace the camel jockeys. And even more than the marketable gulf war, Japan bashingborn of our consuming lives-is ad-ready .... The fun-in-the-fury is expressed in the very word bash-as in both the "attack" and "throw a big bash" senses. Bashing is the only fun we get these days. (Leslie Savan, "Bash and Cash," The Village Voice).
