Hahaa.. omg. I can't believe that these guys didn't even suspect something was wrong in that hoax book. This one really shows (if this truly is correct) how good are english skills among japanese

Ouch...that's evil...The worst I've ever done is ask "Where is the bathroom" incorrectly once during a Spanish test...apparently I didn't spell it right and it turned out to be quite a different word (turns red)

That reminds of an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force where an alien was given one of Carl's come-ons tape.

This is the first forum I've been in that believed the stories they read in the Weekly World News.

They stole it from Monty Python, you bonklers.

it doesnt look real. if you read newspapers, you will find that all journalists follow a specific formula when they write thier articles.

That would be why it is listed under Entertainment news and gossip. Not to mention it is in the Yahoo entertainment section of their site. Just like the Nation Enquirer or the Onion.

Funny, especially the reactions of the people here, though some parody sites like The Onion have real articles.

And remember, just because it's on the internet doesn't mean its not true!

I believe that sketch in Monty Python was the "Hungarian Phrasebook". Not one of the best sketches, so it can be forgiven that the young-uns here haven't heard of it.

It would be unrealistic for a Japanese tourist to read something from a phrasebook and have the listeners react so strongly, they would assume that the speaker garbled what he was trying to say. Please....

This reminds me of another story i've heard before but wondered if it was really true. I heard that there are stores in Japan (or some asian country) that sells shirts with Japanese (or oriental) writing on it that says something to the effect of "I'm a stupid American (foriegner maybe) that bought this shirt because I thought it looked cool." I really want a shirt that says that!

I think it would be worth it if I end up going to Japan with my friend, to find a English to Japanese dictionary that has those kinds of phrases in them. I would love to go up to random cute girls with the book in hand and ask them to "Please put your copious breast in my mouth!" Who knows? Maybe after a few hundred dirty looks and stares maybe I'd get lucky.
