Pronounced with an Umpty

Don’t ask me how, but I just found out that 80’s character actor and current ER nurse Gedde Watanabe has a psuedonym. It turns out Mr. Watanabe’s given first name is Gary.

Ponder that one for a second. Try saying the name “Gary” in Watanabe’s signature Japanese accent (think 16 Candles).

Got it yet? No? Keep trying.

This is such a blatant misuse of a negative stereotype it only makes me angrier that I didn’t capitalize on it first. Too bad there aren’t any good Croatian parts out there, or I’d impugn my racial heritage for fame and fortune.

Props to Dave for the cool acronym tricked used in this post.
