Ban Ki-moon Should Be Swearing

John Oliver of the Daily Show got his own special comedy hour on Comedy Central.  He seems to think that politicians who do not swear are not trustworthy.  He thinks Ban Ki-moon (반기문) should be swearing a lot with the stuff he has to deal with at his job everyday.  The UN has been dealing with a lot of disasters and conflicts recently.

John made the mistake of saying "Mrs. Ki-moon."  Ban is his family name, not Ki-moon, and Korean women do not change their names when they get married.  So, as a Korean, she has no Western equivalent of a "Mrs." title.
