Grammatical Structure

The Japanese have what could be called an "interesting" grammatical structure, but could also be called "confusing", "random", "bogus" or "evil". To truly understand this, let's examine the differences between Japanese and English grammar.

English Sentence:
Jane went to the school.

Same Sentence In Japanese:
School Jane To Went Monkey Apple Carbeurator.

Japanese grammer is not for the faint of heart or weak of mind. What's more, the Japanese also do not have any words for "me", "them", "him, or "her" that anyone could use without being incredibly insulting (the Japanese word for "you", for example, when written in kanji, translates to"I hope a monkey scratches your face off"). Because of this, the sentence "He just killed her!" and "I just killed her!" sound exactly the same, meaning that most people in Japan have no idea what is going on around them at any given moment. You are supposed to figure these things out from the "context", which is a German word meaning "you're screwed".

The Japanese also like cock fighting monsters that live in your pants, taking baths with the elderly, and killing themselves.

Simultaneously? Now that's what I call sophisticated culture.

No, if your monster loses you are forced to take a bath with the elderly and then you want to kill yourself.

Meh Japanese is a dying language ... like English. In 50 years, the Chinese will own us all, so that's the only language people should learn ... and Spanish if you live in the US cuz the Mexicians are gonna take over.

Until the pendulum swings the other way and we stop catering to them.

Hang on, they cater to us don't they?

Soon we'll all be going over to China to start up English/American take aways.

Is that some kind of northern euphamism? Or do you mean it literally?

That's about the only thing meat pie is good for, euphamism.
