** The line is reused in one ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' [[http://robotchicken.wikia.com/wiki/Iron_Man%27s_Coming skit]] where ComicBook/IronMan's metal-ness marching through metal tunnels has clearly worn [[YellowPeril The Mandarin]]'s patience thin.

It is interesting to note that this is a relatively recent development -- the Chinese were known for their strictness, hierarchy, and rule of morality during the Imperial Era, even being referred to as the "land of ceremony and etiquette" (ideals which were exported to, and can still be found in, neighboring Korea and Japan, as well as certain overseas Chinese communities). Beginning with the first Opium War and ending with the Tiananmen Square Massacre, China has undergone [[TraumaCongaLine a brutal history of over]] ''[[TraumaCongaLine 150 years]]'' [[TraumaCongaLine of almost non-stop violence and political chaos]]. The communists in China told the Chinese to abandon good manners and civilized behaviors because they viewed them as the "bourgeois capitalist traits", and thus this trope was born as a result.

One could say that the whole thing is [[ValuesDissonance a big culture-clash]]. It's not to say that there aren't genuine assholes among the peoples of Asia -- there are ''plenty'' -- but more often than not, a 'rude' Asiatic is not genuinely such.

To Anglo - and particularly, 'British' - sensibilities, some Asiatic cultures have a reputation for rudeness.

The Chinese in particular can seem very impolite. They talk loudly and sharply, and come across as bossy and impatient - usually when addressing their social inferiors. This is because China's socio-economic situation (i.e. many citizens live in abject poverty, but there are a lot of Nouveau Riche bastards) means that wage-slaves like waiters and clerks can be and often are treated like dirt.

Essentially, the way various Asiatic peoples converse - i.e. 'rudely' - is mainly an unfortunate result of applying the tone and meter of their own languages to languages where that kind of speaking is the way rude people talk.

* Creator/JasperCarrott noted after a visit to Hong Kong that spoken Chinese could make "I love you and wish to have sex with you" sound like "I intend to wrap barbed wire round your testicles and pull it tight, then to batter you senseless with a concrete block." He suspected it would be impossible to express love or affection in Chinese - it wasn't that sort of language.

* Christmas Eve from ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' is not so much rude as extremely blunt and loud. She will tell characters harsh truths to their faces rather than spare their feelings, which may or may not be a positive quality in her chosen field of being a therapist. She also openly criticizes her husband in public, though this may be because she is frustrated with his laziness and because she genuinely cares about helping him to follow his dreams. Strangely enough, she is actually an inversion of another trope seeing as she is [[JapanesePoliteness Japanese]].
