When Lunds Plastics Division hits the skids, it turns to its newly hired Chinese research and development director, Dr. Chen, whodespite his best intentionsstruggles with both the English language and American corporate policies. When hes told to hire a new scientist, Chen advertises for a young Chinese male who is preferably single. (He isnt sure what religion would be best.) Chens innocent faux pas leads to mandatory sensitivity training, an experience so brutal, even Dick Cheney would call it torture. He builds a new R&D team, featuring Dr. Miao, a Chinese transplant who favors Red Man chewing tobacco and NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. Chen and Miao are joined by the sultry VP of finance, Blinda Mae Trophy Jones, whose best parts are nicknamed Bonnie and Clyde; Monique DEstaing, a tall, black, Harley-riding Cajun lesbian; and sales director Bob Davis, a good ol boy who specializes in strip clubs as customer entertainment. To save the day, his team pulls out all the stopslike celebrity dress-up rollerblade scavenger hunts in Miami Beachbut their antics attract unfavorable attention from corporate human resources. Can Chens company survive his help? Written for anyone whos ever worked in a large company, suffered through sensitivity training, or wondered if Thanksgiving is an anti-turkey display of Eurocentric imperialism, Buzz Kill is an uproariously twisted tale of Americas corporate culture.
