* 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 teticles 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.

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 Chinese culture in particular values bluntness, and 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. 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.

* MargaretCho does an impression of her mother that relies on this trope but tends to be decidedly affectionate. Most of her mother's brashness comes from trouble with the English Language (the only one Margaret speaks) and urgent concern for her daughter. In her rush to {{Mama Bear}}ing, some things just come out wrong.

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, though their equals and betters often get this treatment too. This is because Chinese culture in particular values bluntness, and China's socio-economic situation (i.e. half the country lives 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.
