Sure, he's an idiot, but that doesn't really make for a good YTMND.

Some of what he said makes sense, most is crappy opinion. Oh well.

He speaks truth.

He does speak the truth. American kids ARE pretty damn stupid and immature. However, I don't see why the CEO of a company that imports, markets, and (badly) dubs anime should go around bragging about how he can edit a series so much kids won't even know it originated in Japan when they watch it. That's why Al Kahn is an idiot.

Even though this may not seem funny to the average Joe, I laughed my *ss off throughout the duration of the audio. Kahn is a worthless, stupid bastard, albeit with a sadly accurate point. Goddamn kids and their horrid attnetion spans...

WOW. I agree with people liking free stuff on the Internet, but he blew it when he said the reason was to sell products. He makes Bill Gates seem angelic now.

CAL18, Pokémon was dubbed by 4Kids for eight seasons, but the series is no longer handled by them.

GOOD!!! 8 SERIES?! I'm not watching Pokemon right now coz goddamn Sky One is repeating it.

Ah yes, the infamous Al Khan speech. This further proves that 4Kids is evil. Period.

He's right in a way, but since it insults 4Kids, I give it a 5.

He's an idiot, but he does speak slight truth. Kids read LESS, true, but there is this thing. It's called "Harry Potter" I think...

I thought he was just another politic, but seriously who the f*ck is this guy? he doesnt have a wiki page and why is he at comic con? quit being a jackass and give me an answer so I can rate your damn site its not like this guy is f*cking Elvis Presley

You know, I had no idea who he was before I clicked on the site, but I was at least capable of reading the site's title and others' comments. I guess Al Kahn was right about kids and reading.

All right, here's your explanation: Al Kahn is the CEO of 4Kids Entertainment, a company that licenses and dubs anime series for English-language distribution. They started off with Pokémon, and have gradually got ahold of some more interesting properties, namely One Piece. I'll say no more, and just let Wikipedia take over from here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4Kids_Entertainment ...Lemon curry?

But most kids DON'T know anime is from Japan, so 4kids is indeed doing what exactly what hey wanted to do. They're not dumb, they're pretty damn clever. Kids here are stupid, so they dub shows for stupid kids and get money, that's not dumb.

As Eric Idle say, "If you're going to split hairs, then I'll just piss off!"

maenga, lol. I'm glad that they think that, it means 4kids won't be f*cking up any manga.

Yeah, kids use the internet, and all that, but how do they get on? What do they do there? They read.

Reading text on a computer screen is one thing. Reading text in a book... that's something different.

Shut up, man. I suggest choosing between being anti-semitic and hating 4Kids... please don't do both. Why? It makes you sound like a tremendous idiot.
October 21st, 2006

Oh, and another thing: if you're going to do both, don't compare the two, because it makes you sound even more idiotic.

If your definition of "teh funneh" is a random NEDM appearance, anything relating to Rozen Maiden, or Garfield, then you fail at internets. I think it's okay for this site to lack it, since I'm not an inherently humorous person. Look at my other sites, for Christsakes.
