TURNING JAPANESE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


School was in session this morning at 7th and Montana as a young couple -- a tutor and her student -- made the scene, intent on studying Japanese. As near as I can tell, the woman was teaching a crash course in Japanese from a book entitled "Japanese Language for Busy People." I don't know what the book said, but if you're really busy, here's everything you need to know, courtesy of the Official English-to-Japanese Online Dictionary: Coffee = Ko-hi; Newspaper Thief = Shinbun Touzoku; Local Loon = Ro-karu Toppyoushi-monai; and Accountant = Shukei. There is no known word for Apple Fritter ...!

Thanks for the lesson. Guess we'll just have to rely on English for apple fritters.

How about ringo doo-natsu? Would that work?

Apple fritter is a universal language all it's own
