Corduroy Day

On November the eleventh Koreans

present one another with tall, skinny snacks

made of things that will not make you short

but very well may make you fat, as if to say

“To be like these snacks, leave these snacks be.”

 

By contrast, a small number of Americans

give and wear corduroy items on 11.11. You shouldn’t

eat corduroy either, but you don’t have to try very

hard not to. Instead, you wear it proudly,

like a king: Cord-du-roy. Kings can be as fat

as they please, and often have the power to

make being fat cool.
