Korean cock

There right next to the micro bus stand for Tokha, bathed in the golden, dusty dawn light was the Korean Cock stand. To me the phrase Korean Cock brings only one image to mind and this stand, manned by a young woman, could not possibly be selling it. It turns out to be an imported Korean waffle machine turning out some rather tasty looking waffly fish with chocolate coated heads for a reasonable 10 Ruppes [sic] each. Why cock then? “Cake,” says the boy to the right. That’s a really, really bad and lazy spelling mistake, I think to myself. That or Kathmandu’s advertising industry has taken a great cynical leap forward trying to lure in the returned South Korean female migrant workers market. I explain the meaning, to the two loitering guys, and it takes a good ten seconds before they will let themselves crack up. Bahini, the stall manager, does not want to be in the picture.
