English Textbook from Korea – Shaq is Big and Happy!
I just received this photo of a hilarious entry in an English textbook from South Korea about Shaquille O’Neal. I wonder if Shaq ever approved this?
Shaquille O’Neal was born in 1972. His father was a soldier. So Shaquille moved house a lot. He was always a new kid in a new place. Shaquille’s new friends said to him, “Your name is very funny. And you’re too big!” Shaquille was not happy. He thought, “I don’t like my funny name. And why am I so big? I don’t like it.” He talked to his parents. They said to him, “Be happy. Big people can do many things.”
Now Shaquille is a basketball player. His name is very famous. And he’s happy now.
