Wanna learn Japanese?

LaughIf you ever were, are, or will be thinking about learning Japanese language, you should read this small essey on the subject. Even if you are not going to think about learning Japanese, you should still read this essay, because, I am telling you, it is one of the funniest things I’ve read in recent years.

The only Japanese that I “know” is “Kuma yo oyabun?” which supposedly means “Who is your boss?”. It was translated by some unknown guy into Russian from English subtitles of some American action movie of the 80s. That is one reliable source. :)
