Reason #512 to Learn Korean:

You understand why the 시티병원 is funny.

(For you non-Korean speakers, "시티" is the Hangeulized word "City" and "병원" means "Hospital;" so the place's name is "City Hospital." However, Koreans don't have the sibilant s/c sound followed by the "i" vowel sound, so the pronunciation of "시" is like "she." Ergo... Shitty Hospital.)
