Prepare to be Culturally Enriched

I love all things Japanese. Well, maybe not all things. I'm not one of those people who are so obsessed with another culture that they will only date people from that specific culture. I think those people are called Japanophiles. In my recent internet jaunts, I discovered this site about an American Japanophile who is currently in Japan teaching kids English...which is what I had toyed with doing at some point before this whole nursing thing happened. There's a lot of crap out there in Blogdom. Gaijin Smash isn't one of them.

At any rate, I love the Japanese...culture, that is. The spark happened when I took a Japanese class in high school. Because in Nebraska, a Spanish class just didn't seem practical enough to be offered there. From there, I studied more of the language, the traditions, the food. I thought I would share my love for Japanese culture, and injecting some into this blog, by sharing some common phrases for all to learn and use. Enjoy!!

Koro shite yaru -- I'm going to kill you.
Mattsu! -- Crap!
Onara atama -- Fart head
Urusee -- You are too noisy.
Yaro -- Bastard
Jigoku ni ike -- Go to hell!
Boku no shiri ni kisu siro -- Kiss my ass!
Baka yaro -- Stupid bastard!
Echi shite kudasai -- Please have sex with me.
Bukkoroshite yaru zo -- I'm going to beat you to a pulp.
Debou wa ase o taksan kakimasu -- Fat people sweat a lot.
Do digata ni kazana ho akeruzou -- I'm going to rip open your abdomen.
Oray no shieta koto jenai -- I don't give a damn.
Nande kuso? -- What the hell?
Anata wa sei desu? -- Do you want to have sex?
Kisama tama -- Lord of donkey's balls.
Neboken nayo! -- Get your head out of your ass.
Tansyo-! -- Your "tool" is small.

How exactly do you pronounce "Do digata ni kazana ho akeruzou"

I love how saying KissMyAss takes TEN SYLLABLES in Japanese. Awesome!

My personal favorite!

Kisama tama -- Lord of donkey's balls.

Has a nice ring to it! I like it!

I can just hear me yelling that in traffic.

"KISama TAMa!!!"

Nice!

I was getting a little tired of "asswipe" and "dickweed".

This will add a badly needed international flair to my road rage.

I LOVE THIS!!! I'm like you, I love things Japanese... Here's one more for the list:

Ore wa chinge means I am a pubic hair. Singing this on crowded subway elevators to the tune of the birthday song used to make my Japanese friends in high school go crazy with embarrassment.

Daughter took Japanese, and I was laughing hysterically when she came in, so I let her read these. She checked them off saying, "I knew that..yep...I knew that"

LOL

Thanks for the giggles!
