It wouldn't be the first time I missed one, and it won't be the last. While I was decent as speaking and conversation, Kanji study was the last thing we were allowed time for as missionaries, so, as far as that goes, I'm still not so adequate in that department..

Oh, well, time to return to the corner with the big pointy hat on my head again.. :(

How dare you compare cowboys and office dunces. One gets pulled around by animals and one gets pushed around by humans. Completely different!

I actually got the joke before I looked up the reading of 佐間 for confirmation. How? Context, my friend. You know, that thing you're supposed to use when reading Japanese? ;)
