A good friend of mine married a Japanese girl, he met her when he was working in Japan.
When they got married they did it twice, once in Japan, at a Shinto ceremony, then again later in the US with a Jewish ceremony.

Her parents came over from Japan for the US ceremony & her father bought her an Arisaka (the super gimmicky one with the monopod & anti-aircraft "wings on the rear-sight") as a wedding present. It even had the Mum intact!

When I asked him why he said:
"Because everybody in America has a gun so now you (me) had to teach her how to shoot it".

When I explained to him that this was a military rifle for shooting people, not a deer rifle, she looked at me ever so sweetly, pulled her eyes into a Caucasian shape looked directly into my eyes & said ever so politely:
"Yes, Chazzo San, but only ones with lound eyes"!
Geek
It was the first English I ever heard Toshiko speak! Apparently she was nervous she'd sound odd, with her heavy accent, so she didn't speak in English till she was more comfortable with those around her.
Embarrassed

i love that story , i bet she is a swell gal when you get to know her and she feel comfortable speaking , 

".. her father bought her an Arisaka (the super gimmicky one with the monopod & anti-aircraft "wings on the rear-sight") as a wedding present. It even had the Mum intact!.." 

i had one of those once - actually very desireable rifles in the collecting world , all those features add value , she is a lucky woman , it will take a deer nicely , 

my wife grew up in japan [navy bratt] the loud eyes comment gets brandished about from time to time among her siblings , that and one of her brothers is itchy bon - im sure ive miss spelled but he is number one in my book ,

Right after the wedding he had to go back to Japan for work so I escorted her about for a while. She was a hoot.
She'd go into Japanese places & order things not on the menu. I love Japanese food but I'm allergic to all she!!fish. I asked her to write me a "NO She!!FISH" on a business card because a mis communication makes life a misery for several days. I have no idea what she actually wrote, but every time I'd show it to the waitress they'd crack up laughing.

Hoadie, what happens between you and White Rhino in the barn stays in the barn.

What happens with you and your gnome harem is also not up to discussion.

This is a family friendly board.

Thank you

It might be in the best interest of all on the board if this "chicken issue" was not spoken of on the board.

If you need to correspond with Hoadie on this matter please use the private message method.

As we are a International board some countries take a dim view of beastiality.
