The 8Asians Talk About Something Better Than Jeremy Lin Puns

Our internal e-mail lists have us discussing all kinds of stuff: Asian American identity, representation in the media, the experiences of activism in an academia setting and its progression as we transition to the working, adult world. And sometimes, we try to start our own pop cultural revolution with horrible puns based off of Asian names. Move over, Jeremy Lin. We’ve got someone new!

Joz: From George K, Keep your eyes on basketball player Sabatino Chen…a junior point guard at the University of Colorado. This Asian American basketball player was born in Boulder, CO and played at Monarch HS in Louisville, CO. His dad is of Chinese descent. His mom is of Italian descent.

John: What are we now, a scouting web site for Asian American basketball players? I’ll have to register #CHENNING

Edward: No more _____sanity or ____ning please.

Joz: Will you be mad at us when we go Hong-sane for you and all your Hong-ing acting gigs?

Susan: This is so Chentertaining.

Jeff: I’m totally chenchanted!

Joz: This kid had better be a chentastic basketball player because I can’t wait to be ch-engaged with the chen-eration of ch-endless Chen puns.

Jeff: He better be good as I want to be totally chengrossed!

Ernie: Chenplease kill me chennow.

Jeff: Ernie broke the pun train. Again.

Rule number one of the 8Asians Fight Club: NEVER BREAK THE PUN TRAIN.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
