    Default Japanese Joke

    So...I was talking to some of my more mischevious students on the train today and I asked them to teach me a Japanese joke.

    Here's the joke they gave me:
    こたつ の なかで
    That's it.

    Whatever it means, I'm pretty sure it's dirty. When I said it out loud on the train all the students were like sssshhhhhh!!

    So, what the hell does it mean?

    I don't get it.

    :?

    そり そり ひげそり

    こたつのなかで
    just means "in a/the kotatsu (you know, those coffee tables with the heat lamps underneath them). But it's only half a sentence

    Can't help you with what Paul said - maybe it's the rest of the sentence?!

    I just asked my Japanese wife and she had no clue as to
    the meaning of that joke.

    Might be some inside joke that only those students
    know the punch-line to.

    I understood the Japanese, I just thought there was some hidden meaning that I wasn't getting (I guess there still is).

    Anyway, I'll just ask them again on Monday.

    since you're in Okayama there is a good chance that it's just moronic inaka "humor"

    Probably because so many of them are incapable of facial hair.

    told to me by a JTE:

    What do you get when you put a carrot, onion and cabbage into a blender.

    Mitsuya Cider

    (read it out loud. or just think about it a bit)

    This is apparently the height of Japanese humour.

    Any Japanese jokes that don't end in bad puns?
