Quick Cultural Note

People sometimes ask me what is the proper greeting to give to the bunny waitresses when entering a Japanese restaurant, and I think this sums it up pretty well.

Anime Bunnies!

I will try that next time I go to a Japanese restaurant.

Joe said...

Ummm...

Leesa said...

To quote Joe, "Ummm...."

Captain Dumbass said...

Thanks for the tip, but I think I'll safe it out and just smile and nod.

I don't normally offer legal advice, but "Grant said it was OK" is probably not going to hold up in a US court.

Grant said...

sj - I appreciate your cultural sensitivity. Let me know how it goes.

joe - just 'cause you don't got no culture like we-un's is no reason to mistreat the bunnies when you want sushi.

leesa - at least you gave Joe credit for quoting him.

cda - to the Japanese, the smile and nod is the worst possible insult which can barely be atoned for by seppuku.

gib - next you'll try to claim I don't have the right to continue e-mailing instructions to people for do-it-yourself brain surgery.

Kira said...

Okay, so from the visual you provided, it has to be girl-on-girl rape. I'm a girl. So, I must rape the bunny. Got it. I'll try that out next time.

Ricardo said...

LMAO. This is SO wrong. Keep up the good work.

Circe said...

I'm craving sushi now....

Gib said...

Grant - emailing do it yourself brain surgery instructions is really more of a natural selection issue than a legal one, so I think you're on OK ground there.

Grant said...

kira - the picture shows Haruhi and Mikuru looking at the camera's POV, which is where Kyon would be standing. That means, out of politeness, you should go first and warm the bunny up, then I get to move in. Isn't it fun learning about foreign customs?

ricardo - before you dismiss this, you should try it. It always pays to have an open mind about foreign cultures.

circe - despite the fact that I love J-bunnies and one of the local sushi chefs is a hottie, I've never been able to acquire a taste for sushi.

gib - thanks. In the future, I'm going to refer to you as my legal staff and say I have your approval.
