  • Um, if they look funny because they're funny.

  • Um, but let's go through this.

  • So these are words that are actually japanese that we use in english.

  • First one we say karaoke.

  • Karaoke is when you sing, you make a fool of yourself in front of your friends.

  • It's great In japanese, they say carry.

  • Okay, so the pronunciation is different.

  • It actually means empty orchestra.

  • Do you like karaoke?

  • I hate it.

  • Oh God, Okay.

  • Okay.

  • Please never invite me to karaoke unless you're gonna buy me drinks all night because Ronnie's out into that.

  • Um, this word is a new word, it's huge.

  • I didn't know his japanese emoji somehow blow to, this means word.

  • I know this means word and this means letter.

  • So maybe this means face or appearance.

  • E emoji is actually a japanese word.

  • Figure this out.

  • Face letter.

  • Face letter.

  • It means face letter.

  • There you go.

  • Emoji.

  • Putin, you might think Putin is a couch in japan.

  • Uh, they don't have beds like we do off the floor.

  • They, most people use what's called a futon futon is basically a soft mattress on the floor called a futon.

  • I have no idea what this means, means bed on the floor I guess, but or folding bed, Putin is a japanese word, it doesn't mean a couch, it means a bad next one kamikaze.

  • Now you're thinking, wow, hey, I know this word because it's a very delicious drink.

  • Mhm, It's a nice cocktail and it's also what the Japanese pilots did in World War II or 1 212 to um win the war to try and win the war.

  • Kamikaze actually means divine wind.

  • Kamikaze doesnt mean that their suicide bombers, it means divine wind.

  • So this, their idea was that they, their God will help them win the war with their wind and didn't, sorry Catanha, this is a sword.

  • Maybe you know the word, oh, I need to buy a new katana because mine is getting rusty.

  • Haven't used it that much since my samurai days, which is another japanese ours.

  • Kitana is a sword.

  • This is the kanji for it.

  • Cool.

  • I don't know how this looks like a sword.

  • Kind of looks like a square with a little thing in the end.

  • So Kitana, we say in english sword or katana.

  • Next one.

  • This is a terrible thing, tsunami.

  • Um, a tsunami is something that happens.

  • It's a natural disaster where the ocean basically just destroys and kills things on the shore.

  • Um, Japan has been struck with many tsunamis.

  • Um, but we use this word the same way they do.

  • It's destructive water that comes and washes away the countryside.

  • Um, This part means water, it means harbor bonzai bonzai, this is a tree and actually in japanese, it means a plant that's grown in the tray and instead of us saying, wow your plant that's growing in a tray really looks nice.

  • We just call the bonzai because that's what you guys call it.

  • So a bonsai is a kind of plant.

  • Do you have a bonsai tree?

  • The very small, crazy haiku haiku is a kind of poem.

  • I remember when I was a wee Ronnie in school, we had to write haiku poems, it's something like five lines, seven lines, five lines.

  • I don't remember.

  • It was poetry really short and I was like, damn, this is deep, why doesn't rhyme?

  • Hello, super cool.

  • Or gammy means gammy means paper maybe or means folding, I don't remember, but origami is the art of folding paper.

  • You can make so many cool things out of it.

  • Um Take it up as your next to be super cool.

  • Otaku, do you know this part?

  • Oh taco?

  • Uh maybe two means someone that likes comic books or read comic books in japanese.

  • The meetings a little bit different.

  • It represents a nerd.

  • So a nerd is someone who stays in their home and and doesn't do anything except for read comic books.

  • We learn otaku as someone that plays video games or really likes manga, which is japanese um comic book.

  • So they use it to be like a nerd, someone who stays home and has no social life.

  • We use it for more of someone who loves video games and loves comic books.

  • The meeting is a little different.

  • Don't you think uh since I'm a sense since it means teacher, I think this word became very popular from a movie called karate kid.

  • Karate is a japanese word to so karate kid.

  • I'm sure they use the word since, I don't know though.

  • I never saw the movie but since it means teacher.

  • Um tycoon, Oh have you heard this word a lot recently?

  • They're calling the president in America a tycoon.

  • Now in english a tycoon means someone who has a lot of money like a millionaire.

  • Um and japanese it means a powerful leader or a big power.

  • Maybe not power but someone who has a lot of strength.

  • So yeah the meetings different a little bit different but you get the same idea.
