Stupid joke popped into my head

Post by Dehitay » Thu 05.27.2010 11:52 pm

For absolutely no reason whatsoever, this dumb thing came to mind and I found it somewhat hilarious. But to be fair, I'm somewhat insane and find almost anything hilarious. However, I still wanted to share it, but nobody I know in person would appreciate it. So you, my select audience, get to suffer the foolishness that goes on in my head

日本語でsaunaどう言ってますか?
さあな

If you've come up with any stupid jokes of your own, let me here them. This has started a hunger for more dumb puns

It doesn't work, though, as chikara said -- sauna in Japanese is サウナ, not サーナ. It's unlikely most Japanese people would get the joke.

if it was spoken by a gaijin, they just might (with a bit of explanation).. being that it's written though, you are right.. :)


my favorite thing to tell kids

me: (after being called a gaijin) 僕 は 外人 じゃない. 日本人 だ よ
them : うそ!!
me: 足 は なん本??
them 二本
me: だから......二本人 だ よ
them.. あら..

i'd get a laugh from the adults around as well..
