Dokdo performance art in NYC: Post your caption on this thread. Humorous responses only, please.

New evidence emerges that disproves widespread belief that all Americans are obese.
I’d heard that the Dokdo rocks were small, but I’d never seen them on a human scale before. Now, I understand why Koreans are so worried that Japan will steal them. I hope the thief in the photo above was apprehended.

Golly, there’s a Korean in the photo?! Where?
disclaimer: no animals were harmed in the making of this Dokto performance art.
That’s superimposed. What’s the joke? Why was he placed in NYC?
Someone stealing something in broad daylight? Puah! This is NYC… who cares?
The japanese imperial flag design is awesome, isn’t it?
Notice the Americans carrying on with there lives while passing by what must be to them a low budget advert for “Ninja Warrior” on G4 network TV.
I thought I recognized this as the outside of Penn Station. I used to work in that building – 2 Penn Plaza, and let me tell you, nutcases like this are such a common sight there that they are guaranteed to be ignored.
Who knew Michael Jackson had a dog in this fight?
Just because that woman’s black doesn’t mean she’s going to steal your islands. Jesus Christ, you’re a racist.
Activists sought to bring attention to their cause through peaceful demonstration in public areas located throughout the city yesterday. Other issues highlighted included ‘Stop Continental Drift NOW’ and ‘Soil Erosion is Soil Theft’.
how about a little Demotivator-style caption?
We don’t care, dude. Seriously.
Psst, wanna buy an island for $24? Eviction of present occupants not included.
You wouldn’t steal a purse, you wouldn’t steal an island. Piracy is theft!
he should relocate to yasukuni shrine and protest there… it would be pretty interesting.
Looks like a cardboard cutout to me (look at the reflection on foot…Seems too glossy to be real).
1. When will America stop throwing money into Africa and Iraq and realize that the world has REAL problems?
2. “Mommy, why is Michael Jackson stealing islands?”
“I don’t know. Keep walking.”.
3. Unfortunately, the Koreans failed to realize that Dokdo ranks in the typical American’s priorities somewhere between getting enough niacin and learning semaphore.
4. This is a mistranslation, my friend. Instead of “island,” you should have “pile of rocks not worth flipping a coin over.”
5. You know what this needs? Jazz hands.
+1 for no. 2.
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
Baby got back.
Girl on the right: “Hey, look at that Chinese guy!”
Yes, it is a cutout. The article identifies it as such and if you clink on the link to original, there is another image of the same cutout in Times Square.
I cast votes for #4, #8, and #19-2.
New Yorkers discover the new “it” bag.
Stealing has no national boundaries.
Sorry, I must have missed that. I guess the thought of going to see Mario Lopez in Chorus Line was too distracting.
Upon catching the thief, local Korean American was dismayed that there was only one pebble in the bag.
Nowadays, even American Gyopo Koreans are quick to snap up the latest Japanese fashion trends.
I claim those two mounds on the principle of terra gluetus!

My caption submission:
“IRONY – Asking to stop island theft on an island that was “purchased” with beads.”
# 31… wins hands down!
They be steelin mai ilandz!
About time Japan stole Dokdo back!
oh, it’s even more ironic than that . . . it’s an island “purchased” with beads from a tribe that didn’t actually own the land. The Dutch paid the Carnarsees, Brooklyn natives, but it sounds like the Weckquaesgeeks actually living on the land weren’t were pretty upset, and spent the next couple years at war with the Dutch over the deal (See James Lowen, “Lies My Teacher Told Me, pg. 122 or Wallace, Wallace, and Wallechinsky “Significa” pg. 326)
screw dokdo…save baekdusan from the chinese
“The Grinch Does New York”
#32 wins. No questions.
He was doing this on LianDokashima Rockdo for three years, but nobody noticed him there.
Stop stealing islands!
Use eminent domain instead.
compare the price of those rocks to the price of illegal software, movie and other piracy everyday in korea
and you talk about stealing???
“Remo Williams lives!”
34/green lolspeak be tha bombz!
Haz anibuddy seen maw Dokdo?? Iz awr islandz!!1!!
Or, in Pirate: Arrgh, theys be stealin’ our islands, the rotten scallywags!
Or, in Ebonics: Fo shizzle ma nizzle them islands be mine and ain’t you, ain’t them, ain’t nobody gonna be up in them, without askin’ ma express consensusness.
I’m glad folks understood the whole correlation between Dokdo and Manhatten. Took me a bit to think that one up, Glad some folks liked it.

That guy just uncloaked. Now the fun begins.
Remo Williams? Hahahaha… I loved Chiun. He’s so freak’in Korean.
“Takeru Kobayashi once again rises to glory by winning the annual ‘Biggest Ass’ contest in New York. Second place went to some African-American woman.”
“Dokdo: Hurry and visit before it’s gone! For more information, go to http://www.traveldokdo.co.kr. Brought to you by the Dokdo Travel and Tourist Information Ministry.”
“What also floats in water?”
“Uh, very small rocks!”
Wait a minute….is the dude wearing slippers while stealing.
Oh yea he is going to get far.
Only poor sloganeering stood in the way of Chul-Soo warning everyone that David Blaine would make Manhattan disappear in three hours.
“DOKDO: Small enough to be stolen and smuggled away in anyone’s ass at any time.”
“Taking out the trash.”
I noticed that too! Slippers?!?!?! WTF!?!?!?!?
I dunno bout you all, but when I get force fed my propaganda – I prefer attention to details!
“Put some sneakers on!”
Or at least wear some real geta.
Ajumah slippers 2000Won

Complete and utter indifference from passersby Priceless
What the hell is Dokdo?!?!
glue+handkerchief. a li’l’ dab’ll do ya.
I’m glad folks understood the whole correlation between Dokdo and Manhatten. Took me a bit to think that one up,
I beat you to the punch in comment #14 (Pssst, wanna buy an island for $24? Eviction of present occupants not included), but the reference was probably missed by most people.
And yet another loser art student trying to figure out a new way to annoy the public to get attention.
(Waht ever happen to bottles of piss and the Virgin Mary…too blase?)
that girl has got a nice rear yo! I think that’s the focus of the picture, wish I could see more of that in Korea!!!!
Well, that’s were the correlation ends. Manhattan is prime real estate –the Native Americans really got ripped off– whereas Dokdo is a couple of rocks in the middle of the sea.
“Looks like a cardboard cutout to me (look at the reflection on foot…Seems too glossy to be real).”
I looked around the outlines. And it does look two-dimensional.
Regardless, this is stupid. Dokdo is under Korean control, all those protests and demonstrations are a waste of time. They’re better off trying to find more historical evidance if they want to legalize their claims. Rather then screaming around and annoying people.
“I survived a vacation to Korea and all I got were these lousy rocks.”
