Agree to Ugly

High school students:

"What does 'agree' mean?"


"Hey, it's 'angry'!"

"Ah, then it's '醜い(minikui),' isn't it?"

"Come on, that's 'ugly'!!"

My dear visitors, if you have a big laugh at it, you may be a Japanese expert.


It took me a moment because it must be funnier to hear than to see written down, right?

Isn't it strange that I never learned the Japanese would for "ugly" before? One of these days I must start studying again.
