That seems long and annoying. Isn't there some random katakana word that would work like ベンディングマシーン?
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

I'll need the copyright for it by next Tuesday so I can officially get it into dictionaries by the end of next week ;)

It is long, that's why japanese people have abbreviated it to 自販機 (じはんき)

See, I knew there had to be something. When you have a word that long in Japanese either
a) they replace it with a katakana word or
b)shorten the word itself

plz ppl,im desperate to know,do ANY OF YOU know how to say ''love'' and ''i love you'' in japanese???plz tell me!!!!plz!!!!


Hijacking much? You can't just randomly burst into a completely unrelated thread and ask your own questions. Haven't you read the rules? Start your own thread or ask in the shoutbox.

Or better yet, search for one of the gazillion other threads the same question has been asked in.

In some cases, yes. However, in most cases the "juice" in these machines is Coke, Sprite, Fanta, green tea, etc. As you of course know, ironically, people rarely mean actual juice when they say ジュース.

I have found that people never mean "juice" when they say ジュース. When the mean "juice" they say 果実.
