Ken Jeong relives his WWE stint with The Miz

Ken Jeong on Community TCA panelOn tonight's hilarious second episode of Community, we see the first appearance of Ken Jeong, who's joining the cast as Spanish professor Señor Chang. Chang has a bit of a chip on his shoulder because he always has to fight against Asian stereotypes.

He's a welcome addition to the cast, and he's been having a hell of a summer. Besides his memorable turn in the massive summer hit The Hangover, he was also in All About Steve and The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. To promote the latter movie, Jeong and co-star Jeremy Piven bounced around the ring on WWE Raw in August. Imagine a tiny guy like the 40-year-old Jeong trading blows with huge wrestlers and you can see the comic potential.

When I talked to Jeong at NBC's party at the TCA press tour, we were interrupted by WWE's The Miz, and the exchange between them was just too funny for me to keep on my hard drive. Audio is after the jump.

Any mention of The Miz makes me want to puke.

I once did some computer work for some missionaries who'd spent most of their lives in South America, and were fluent in Spanish. They told me the story of how they went into the computer store (back in the late 80's / early 90's before Dell and Gateway took often, and you were often buying computers from geeks who'd put them together to spec) and were speaking to a nice Asian gentleman about a system. To discuss it, missionary husband turns to his wife and says, in Spanish, something to the effect of "What do you think, honey? Is this a good deal, or is this jerking us around?"

To which he heard come from behind him, in equally fluent Spanish, "No, it's a good deal, I'm not jerking you around."

My memory of the story is that the guy was from the Canary Islands, where the Asian/Spanish crossover is quite common. But I could be remembering that completely incorrectly.
