Saturday night the booze flowed, and the muse was speaking to me; I thought up an awesome Japanese name for people, such as one of my roommates, who continue to wear shorts into the winter months: 短パンマン.
アンパンマン is a legendary Japanese cartoon character named after a dessert bread stuffed with azuki bean paste.
The azuki bean bread (アンパン) easily transforms to shorts (短パン), making a great pun. It received high praise from the other roommates.
You heard it here first. (In the words of John Henson, former host of Talk Soup, "Come on, it’s funny!")
