And still I continue to kill time while working on new material.

I never thought I'd see the day that I posted something from SNL on this site, but the show's Digital Shorts are usually good -- typically the only thing good in any given week -- and this past Saturday's was especially inspired.

It featured Ricky Gervais introducing a supposed Japanese version of The Office. The sketch works because anything even remotely Japanese is funny.

Why, you ask?

Because from what I've been able to gather, the Japanese are insane.

(Needless to say, I have absolutely no idea what the hell the title of this post means. I just picked a bunch of characters and threw them together. If I've just insulted Yasuo Fukuda's mother, I apologize.)

Having studied Japanese (language and culture) for so long, and bing a proud otaku, I can tell you this:

You are right, the Japanese are nucking futz.

And I wouldn't have them any other way.

For those of you who doubt said nation-based insanity, proof:

It's funny 'cause it's racist.

Prophet of Ra said...

according to google, it says nothing in japanese, but in chinese it says:

Gai @ 7 under three Mian not Chou Chou

It would seem that your title is about as potentially insulting as your average hexadecimal code. It might be insulting to cows.

If only they could have thrown in some original-recipe bukkake and a tentacled anime monster that sexually violates schoolgirls and they could have more fully captured the unique mindset of the Japanese.

I only recognize about half of the characters... under 70,000 with something about a 3 in there.

Those frickin' Japanese are crazy. I'm Japanese American and I'm afraid of the Japanese.
