You don’t have speak Japanese to be familiar with their writing (excuse me for not knowing the proper name).
You know Katakana, Hiragana and the rest.
Well somehow one of my friends managed to take this information, process it through her crazy but entertaining brain and come out with a comment that made us laugh. [Those that know who I am talking about will be familiar with this process of hers. It is, after all, one of the main reasons we love her so much.]
Curious to know what she came up with:
“I thought, for a second, that they had, like every other country except Australia had little character thingys as their letters. Like the Japanese and stuff. Like America they like burgers and fries, so they can talk with burgers and fries. It makes sense!”
Naturally the response was a lot of laughter as well as this smart-ass (yet highly entertaining) comment from another friend:
‘I’ll meet you at the pizza at burger o’clock”
The girl who made the original comment couldn’t let this pass without a reply.
‘That would be pretty cool. Like,like all their things are like symbols. So a burger could be, like hello.”
The girl-friend of the smart-ass then decided to add her two cents:
“But..You know they’re not. Right?”
APOLOGIES: This is the first time I have had to add an apology section
yet I feel it wont be the last. Anyway…
First I would like to apologise to all those that are a fan of good grammar.
I am aware there were many “like”s in this post but I was quoting her exactly as it came out of her mouth.
I didn’t exaggerate anything.
I can upload the recording to prove it.
Secondly, (All the Americans reading this are expecting it to be you,right? You really shouldn’t assume)
I apologize to everybody who likes burgers and fries that the girl forgot to mention.
I know this is a lot of people (let’s be honest who doesn’t like burgers and fries?) who were not mentioned
so we would like to acknowledge all who like burgers and fries now.
Now I’m off to TAB. I want to see what everyone is betting on how many apologies I’ll have to make.
If you want a tip: It’s going to be A LOT
