Animals

Zさん:"ね、ね、I have a riddle for you."
Bさん:「Sounds like fun, what is it?」

Bさん:「I don't know, what do you call it when a rabbit and an eel wear jackets?」
Zさん:"うさぎとうなぎのうわぎ。"

Need A Break

Aさん and Zさん are driving in a car and it stops suddenly.

Zさん:"Whoa! The car in front of us stopped and we almost crashed into it.  Luckily, your car has those new computer sensors and could stop automatically."
Aさん:「Not exactly.  I just stepped on the breaks in time. 」
Zさん:"... no, I think the car stopped automatically. 車がとまる。"
Aさん:「I disagree.  私は車をとめる。」
Zさん:"You say とめる and I say とまる."
Aさん:「I say とめる and you say とまる.」
Zさん:"とめる"
Aさん:「とまる」
Zさん:"とめる"
Aさん:「とまる」
Zさん:"レツコールザホールシングオフ。"
Aさん:「。。。What?」
