A Practical Joke Gone Wrong

Update #1: Curtis replied.

Update #2: 'Su Ku Kia' in my language means 'Silly Boy'. Nothing malicious. Something 8-year-old kids would use to insult each other.

Curtis Gropp has been following my blog for quite some time now. He's always faithfully leaving comments eventhough he's one of those who falls outside the category of "kennysia.com's expected audience".

I used to be naive enough to believe that the average kennysia.com reader is likely to from Malaysia, Chinese, and somewhere between 15 to 35 years old. But after learning that even my stupid blog was routinely mentioned in Harvard University's Global Voices Online, I think I'll believe in just about anything.

Curtis is nothing like my stereotypical kennysia.com reader. He is 39 years old, an ang moh, hails from Huntington Beach, California, a proud and patriotic American, a former marine, and apparently a Hong-Kong action movie aficionado.

A few weeks ago, Curtis left a comment in one my entries.

I'd like to have a Chinese name. How do you say "8-inch penis"?

To which I replied:

Curtis G, hey I enjoy giving out Chinese names! Anyway in Chinese, "8-inch penis" is called "Su Ku Kia". But I doubt you can pick up any Chinese girls when you go "Hi! My name is Su Ku Kia." Chinese girls aren't used to that kind of straight forwardness you know?

Posted by: Kenny at June 9, 2005 03:25 AM

Fast forward a few days later. I completely forgotten about what I said to him, and I was puzzled as to why he signed off differently nowadays.

He even went as far as to use his newfound Chinese name to comment on other blogs.

Unregistered

KENNNYYYY ur so evil loll!!! go tell him the truth... omg lol

Unregistered

You know what - it could have the reverse effect because when they hear that coming from an angmoh ppl would be intrigued man!

Yo Curtis, you famous now! :P

ps. he reads my blog too - be nice lah! Hahahah.....

Unregistered

hahahahahahhahahaha.

sorry, i'm just laughing and rolling on the floor. it's so funny. you're so going to hell for this. hehe.

Unregistered

I'm a little bit in the dark regarding 'su ku kia'.

Unregistered

Walauuu... you should tell him the truth man... And he reads your blog some more.. He knows it's a joke once he reads this post... So I guess you have no choice but to tell him the truth right? Haha... You're funny Kenny...

Unregistered

u famoose mah!!

Unregistered

Hahaha this is a funny one...only Kuchingites'll get this one right Kenny?

Unregistered

What is Su Ku Kia?

Unregistered

OMG I really cannot imagine him using that line on some chinese girls "Hi gals. My name is Curtis but you can call me Su Ku Kia."

I really dunno what to do for you sia! If you tell him ... well ... you might get hell! But then spare him future embarrassment?

Unregistered

angel: su ku does not really mean 8 inch penis. -.-

lol tell him lah.

Unregistered

Anon: really? so what does it really means? Sorry, my dialect is not very well versed.

Unregistered

wakakakaka! damn you lar kenny! you'll go to hell man. lol!

curtis... you've just been punked. and yea, WMP sucks.

Unregistered

Oh my god oh my god... evil! Horribly evil! Next time, tell the Ang Moh that he's called Kan Ni Nah Bei...

Unregistered

whats su ku kia?!
sorry i suck at dialects.

Unregistered

LOL!!! Maybe you should tell him the real meaning and give him the translation for his earlier request. :D Just don't visit the US anytime soon.

Unregistered

omg, u meanie~ haha.
but do u mind explaining wad the hell is "su ku kia"??

Unregistered

lol, kenny. looks like that playfulness backfired, hahaha.

Unregistered

skk = idiot kid

Unregistered

Haha!! I think Su Ku Kia is less traumatising than an 8-inch penis.

Unregistered

Wah lau (present tense), Wah liew (past tense), Wah Piang (past continuous tense)...hahaha... in my dialect here su ku means quater.. so tats mean he hav a quater long penis... wahahahahha

Unregistered

What is su ku kia?!!!

Unregistered

HAHAHAHA now I see the joke after Pink Tutu posted it. Poor Curtis!

Unregistered

omgg!! Kenny!! I guess u should tell him the truth.. hahahhahhaa...

Su Ku Kia & 8 inch penis aint the same meaning lehh... you are so bad.. hahahahhahahahhahhahahah

-________-"

Unregistered

Su Ku means something like 'sotong' (for Singaporeans), if you still don't get it, it means 'silly'. Kia simply means punk, or kid.

so Su Ku Kia is something like silly punk

lol, the irony...haha

Unregistered

u so bad, kenny
tell him the truth :)

Unregistered

Su Ku means something like 'sotong' (for Singaporeans), if you still don't get it, it means 'silly'. Kia simply means punk, or kid.

so Su Ku Kia is something like silly kid

lol, the irony...haha

Unregistered

OMG wahhahahaha you are evil man... now where is curtis ???

Unregistered

I think you had better tell him the truth just in case he goes around calling himself su ku kia man. Or else you'll lose another reader and earn yourself another hater. Hahaha..

Unregistered

oh my goodness tell him hahaha or you just might lose your californian reader hahahahaha..... backfired la kenny...backfired... :P

Unregistered

muahahahaaaa!!
poor curtsi

Unregistered

A guy posing with a shot gun, wanting to know what is chinese for 8-inch penis, he is an american? he was asking for it.

Unregistered

So does that make me a Tua Su Ku?

Ku-ul...!

Unregistered

haha...nice one...shud have told him that it was su ku ang moh gao...

Unregistered

Hahaha... I think Shaolin Tiger also got his nick from you :P

Unregistered

jackson: eh hello....it's called "satire" lah si-boh. Note his ATF shirt, and then note the bottle of gin - I assume (Alcohol), the cigarette (Tobacco) and the shotgun (Firearm).

Unregistered

LoL...u r damn mean...makes me wonder if any guy has been motivated to name his male genital Su Ku Kia...haha

Unregistered

maybe u can ask him to consider naming his penis su ku kia instead...

Unregistered

hope he didn't go and tattoo his chinese name on himself. worst still on his brother.

Unregistered

Good one man, hats off, lets hope he doesn't come after you with that (double barrel?)shotgun.

Unregistered

use "Yi Tiao Long" (A Dragon). More impressive. lol

Unregistered

You are just mean!! What happened if you dont understand english and some people give u name such as fucker!

Unregistered

nice man... but it would have been more funny seeing him actuallly call himself ba chun bang in front of a chinese gal... su ku is a bit of hokkien wif malay influence, so angmoh chinese wont actually noe wat it is...

Unregistered

hahahhh

Unregistered

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unregistered

omg hahahhahahaha eh su ku kia really means sotong punk kid ah???

when i saw su ku kia, i was thinking of something else. su ku as in suku as in a quarter. then i was thinking of d penis.

so umm...... quarter inch penis??

OMFG HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA SO DAMN SHORTTTTTTTTTTT

Unregistered

OMG!!! What a great laugh!

Unregistered

AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That name's a sure-win babe magnet...

Unregistered

Yi Tiao Long (Dragon)??? It should be Yi Tiao Chong(Worm)!!! :P

Unregistered

kenny u r such a dickhead
rot in hell

Unregistered

Hey Dude, Curtis should thank you as you gave him a great pickup line.

Imagine Curtis goes to the Beach Club in KL...or Soho.. in Kuching. He introduce himself to a local girl, "Hi, I am Sukukia"..a girl probably lighten up, feel a little strange, perhaps a bllush, but then she feels sorry for Curtis for being punked, this is how a conversation initiat, from a humorous start. The girl would malu malu tell Curtis what does Sukukia mean as human always like to correct others, make her feels a little superior, plus we Malaysian are pretty freidnly and helpful in nature...after a drink or two... she would fell for him and his 八寸釘 ....a little bar pickup techniques for your 15 to 35 years old male readers who only get to 打飛机 on Saturday nights.

Folks you have to think outside the circle....may be that is why shy shy Chinak guys have a hard time pick up /impress ladies, where as the fatass, 45 year old, beer bellied, Oil Rig Expat worker goes back to his hotel with the finest babe from the Club.

Unregistered

To the idiot that left a racist and inflammatory comment on Curtis' blog, you are a f**king loser. Don't complain about racism when you are a racist yourself, asshole.

Unregistered

lol yea would be more funny to hear him calling himself 8 inch dick
ba chun yang dao XD

Unregistered

U r so dead when he finds out !

Unregistered

Haha! You know a mean person when you see one! And nothing beats publishing this for the world to see!

Unregistered

WAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAH! This is so fun.

Unregistered

Poor guy. I think u shud tell him abt this. I can't imagine how furious he can be after knowing the truth.

Unregistered

hilarious!

whats next kenny? ;)

Unregistered

I saw that guy's message on Curtis' side. I'm afraid he has succeeded in making himself sound like a total idiot.

Unregistered

By idiot I mean that anonymous guy and not Curtis. :P

Unregistered

hilarious!

whats next kenny? ;)

Unregistered

Maybe you should suggest new chinese names for adam to call me since he's always calling me 'Koko' and 'Cheebai'

-_-

Bastard.

Unregistered

after seeing so many 'omg!' and 'what's sukukia?' i think u can either leave it alone as it is or even just tell him straight to his face saying it's a silly dialague we use in kch. haha!
OMG! i'm beginning to love ur post once more!!

Unregistered

Wahlaueh... What kinda sane person who reads Kennysia's blog all the time would actually believe in Kenny's advice.. :x

Unregistered

OMG, Kenny! How can you do this to such a decent bloke?! (I do that to my English pals as well, oh well, least they get the English girls and I get their 'Burst-out-laughing' chinese chicks)

Unregistered

Evil. tsk tsk. But i like.. hahaha~

Unregistered

I have an Aussie pal dating an Honkie chick. He asked me for a chinese name to use to impress her folks. I said, use "hamsup". It means, smart and intelligent. I told his gf, and she played along too, so the Aussie guy has been using hamsup for his name for the last year.

Unregistered

oh man... poor guy... funny post though :)

Unregistered

haha so JAHATTTTTTTT....kesian that sukukia..

Unregistered

So the joke is on me, is it? Well, let me just say that when I thought "su ku kia" meant "8-inch penis," it was cool. Now that I know it doesn't...it's still cool. And funny as fuck. You think they might cover this in your local newspaper? That would be DOPE.

I thought I might post a little visual entertainment for your readers, but then I decided that it would have been so utterly tasteless that I would have regretted it immediately. (Oh, yeah—I guess I exaggerated a little. How would you say "SEVEN-inch penis"?)

I only hope that when I someday visit Malaysia and meet Kenny for dinner, someone will recognize me and call out, "Su Ku Kia!" And I'll smile, nod knowingly and reply, "You're damn right."

Anyway, thanks for the traffic, Kenny. I ain't mad atcha. But y'know, I still owe you. This *could* mean war...

—Curtis G. (aka Su Ku muthafuckin' Kia)

Unregistered

Oh, and if you like my shirt (it says "Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency"), visit ThoseShirts and tell 'em Curtis sent ya!

Unregistered

Good attitude Curtis aka SKK . U da bomb

Unregistered

*takes hat off for curtis* - u da man (for taking the joke so well).

Unregistered

There's nothing better than a joke, and someone who can take it well..

Unregistered

*respect to mr Su Ku muthafuckin' Kia*

Unregistered

Hey skk, try "pwayk chun kia" or "chit chun kia". Literally translated to 8" or 7" kid.

Unregistered

omg, kenny you're so evil! anyway Im 17 so there, lies in between the range..

Unregistered

Kenny, me 9 leh. Beri underaged.

Unregistered

hahaaa.... you naughty boy! i think juz tell him u got a better chinese name for him... hahaa....

Unregistered

HAHAHA!!!
Oh my god. That's like so cool! So damn farni!!!
I cant believe you did that. god. u r in
DEEP SHIT!!!

Unregistered

"SEVEN Inch Penis" ? Should be " Qi Chun Jin " right? Qi as in ( Chi ). Chun as in (Choon). Jin as
in (Gin)

Unregistered

i think you should tell him the truth. or else, if he found out himself one day, he'll be hurt that you lied to him or make fun of him.

Unregistered

i think you should tell him the truth. or else, if he found out himself one day, he'll be hurt that you lied to him or make fun of him.

Unregistered

I wonder... What happen if someone read this, din know what Su Ku Kia actually meant, and went on to tattoo it on his body...(Let's not say on where...-wink-)
It'll be interesting to see it and have a good laugh. =D

Unregistered

hmm thats funny, dont think he would mind unless he did what CoWg0eSm0o said to tattoo the word su ku kia on his body.

Unregistered

One day, if we heard news that a Kenny is kidnapped/MIA or bla~~ We know who and where to find.

Please call to donate $5 to President's Star Charity.

Please do! I know everyone's been very upset about the NKF saga and everything.. but when we called to donate the money the money didn't belong to us anymore... it belonged to the needy. And Durai didn't 'steal' the money from us he took it from the needy... the ones who STILL need it NOW! If we're not going to help now, then they will suffer injustice a second time. No matter how angry you are at that man, please do not lose faith. Please donate.

I beg you then.

Sorry for using your blog to write this... PLease forgive me.

Unregistered

Talk about 'Blog Whoring' - 'pet' just gave whoring a new name - Charity Whore.

Unregistered

aiyoh...evil lah you. Poor Su Ku Kia! Anyway, he probably know what you did now with this entry. Hmm..wonder whether he'll still use his newly adopted name.

Unregistered

Yo! Su Ku Kia! Respect/Respect....Glad that you can take the joke positively. Anyway, it's just a harmless joke by Kenny "Lampakia" Sia

Unregistered

pet, considering its for charity, I'd be very happy to post it up for you. You could've just asked, you know?

Unregistered

what about you suggesting a name for my dog? cos i'm getting a westie. i thought of westiesaurus, but it's too bombastic. ha.

Unregistered

lol..
latest update... Cortis "THE Su Ku Kia"!
Cortis, my utmost respect to you man!

Kenny, you're talented with name giving...
perhaps an extra service is applicable? haha..
you could like.. charge a few dollars for a name and i'll be your manager.. hahaha... kidding man..
awesome blog!
my first time here actually ;)

Unregistered

fcukling, Westiesaurus is too long. Its easy to think of a name for a dog. Keep it at two syllables max, and let it end with a 'y'.

eg. Kenny.

Unregistered

Haha! WTH [above]!

Kenny, you're so online now! If chatterbox isn't on strike, we would be having a romantic chat right now. Damn.

Unregistered

HAHA! Oh my fcuking goodness. You want my dog to be named after you? Well I have a poll on my blog.

Gotta scroll down a little, though.
Only 5days left!!!
Woohoo~ Free advertising sia.

Unregistered

Eh, sorry. Didn't know the comment appeared twice...

Unregistered

I told my wife about our "international incident" this morning. She said I was silly. So I guess you gave me the correct name after all. :D

Unregistered

Give him new name, lah, what about Emperor's Yew Tiao or something? (I no speak chinese man)

Unregistered

eee? i thought su ku kia means crazy fella instead of silly fella?

Unregistered

gosh, we have a crisis here... Kenny's been kidnapped!... (ok just kidding...)

nah... Su ku kia actually meant more of... ignorant fella. yup. =D

Unregistered

Agree with Missy Claris. Su Ku Kia means mad child. Su Ku as in 'tiga suku', half past six, not quite right. Kia as in child.
Aiyah.....whatever it is, it certainly has made Curtis famous....in a good way!...i think...

Unregistered

kids out there, don't simply play practical jokes okay? you will never know when su ku kia will show up at your house and point that gun at you :p (if he ever finds out what that means...he just might have if he starts reading your comments)

Unregistered

kenny.. man you're a mean arse...

Unregistered

niao hia that guy ah....si bei su ku sia

Unregistered

omg what have you done?!you've taken advantage of a poor ang moh soul!!hehe

Unregistered

Omg Kenny!!! That was total evil!!! I couldn't stop laughing... till now.. wiping my tears of laughter off... But, I gotta give it to Curtis!! He's a real trooper!! Way to go man... Su Ku Kia... ROTFL!!

Unregistered

Tell him the truth lah, he trust you that is why he asked you.

Unregistered

kenny, u rock! poor su ku kia

Unregistered

OMG..Evil Kenny! Ought to apologise to him...and I take my hat off to Curtis AKA Su Ku Kia 4eva cause he responded and took the joke so well, and wasn't mad at you. =D
So now you REALLY kidnapped ar?!?!

Unregistered

g'job kenny, su ku kia sounds so much cuter than wat he asked for.. would it be ba chun "joy"? =P see? sound so bad hor?!

Unregistered
