Cash or Charge?

Koreans kids love to poke each other, and by extension me, in the arse. See: dung-chip.

Despite the fact that I'm obviously having none of it, they still try and get their shots in when the opportunity arises.

Today, Joseph unleashed a secret move the likes of which has never been seen before.

He calls it Card Slash.

The principal is similar to dung-chipping, but the execution is more like swiping a credit card through a scanner, only the credit card is a karate-chop gesture, and the scanner... well, you can read between the lines.

It's now the shenanigan-de-jour during breaks between class.

Metaphorically speaking, the 5-minute crack between two 40-minute classes must be filled with something— why not a card slash?

No one has yet performed the move on me and lived to tell the tale.
