I always find these sorts of stories interesting as I have played the Mmorpg World Of Warcraft since beta, and have myself noticed the amount of spam in general chat within the game from 3rd parties trying to squeeze in on Blizzard Entertainment's profits by doing the exact same thing, farming in-game items/rare items to sell for real money, or to sell on an in-game auction house for in-game money to sell for real money as well.

Short and sweet

The term "gook" was originally used for Koreans. During the Korean War, the word Mee-gook would often be heard which means America. To a US soldier, it sounds like the Koreans would call themselves gooks. In addition, the Korean name for Korea is Han-gook, and a shorten version referred to Koreans by the US soldiers would often be gook.

From that point on, the word gook was applied to some SE Asians, but particularly the Viet-Congs.

And no, gooks are not Viets or anyone you racist jack!
