I’m down to my last week in Nishiaizu. With 送別会 every night and packing and cleaning to worry about, How to Japanese takes a back seat. I’ll give you guys three puns this week, and regularly scheduled programming will return next week.

One of the new English teachers at the junior high school uses some ridiculous puns in the classroom to get the kids to laugh. Recently they learned the word Asian, and his pun for this was, 「なかなかええじゃん」

ええ = いい

じゃん = じゃない

But together it sounds a little like Asian.
