I'm not sure if this is the best place, but I wanted to encourage people to do a video and to test the nifty Zen(tm) video embedding script.

NHK has a children's show called 日本語であそぼ which has recently spotlighted the rakugo story, Jugemu.

As the story goes, a father went to the local priest and asked for a good name for his son. The priest gave him a list of suitable names, but the father not being able to settle on just one name took all the suggestions and made it into one large name:

Jugemu-jugemu
Gokōnosurikire
Kaijarisuigyo-no Suigyōmatsu
Unraimatsu Fūraimatsu
Kūnerutokoroni-sumutokoro
Yaburakōjino-burakōji
Paipopaipo-paiponoshūringan
Shūringanno-gūrindai :Gūrindaino-ponpokopīno-ponpokonāno
Chōkyūmeino-chōsuke

寿限無寿限無
五劫の擦り切れ
海砂利水魚の 水行末
雲来末 風来末
食う寝る処に住む処
やぶら小路のぶら小路
パイポパイポ パイポのシューリンガン
シューリンガンのグーリンダイ
グーリンダイのポンポコピーのポンポコナーの
長久命の長助

(from here)

I forgot a の and I have a pretty bad gaijinian accept (I need to work on that more), but here it is:
