you know, you should really look at how you word things next time .. it does say something .. it says "A man needs not explain himself to a dog"

actually I got a bit of a laugh out of it, I think your skin must have thinned over the past little bit.

I once heard that in order to be offended, one must really spend much energy to get worked up.. "twould be easier to just let it go and educate the person rather than pounce on them in a fever.

Without some sort of help the script/text if very hard to recognize. Now that you have explained what it meant, it helps.. maybe a translation underneath would spark more curiousity.

either way, it's done.. No need to get your panties in a twist..

It definently was...you just never noticed it...ignored = mazed and japanese = panties...everything makes more sense when you look at it like that.
