I am a Japanese School Teacher

Outpost Nine (site/blog)

Some time ago I found this page, and today I refund it. It is a blog of an American guy teaching through the JETs program in Japan. He is very funny an updates about once a week. If you really want to know what Japanese kids are like you should read some of his posts, it is surprising. Koncho for one....

Anyways here is a short story that I thought was funny from his blog, but really if you need a good laugh go check the site out.

I was at the gym with a female Japanese friend. We were watching the news on TV when suddenly she turns to me and asks "So, you're American, right? How many guns do you have?"
Notice the word usage here. Not "if" I have guns, no! "How many" guns do I have. Because surely, as a red-blooded American, I own guns. Yee-haw, when I'm not drinkin' my root beer and eating myself damn to death, I sure love me to shoot some stuff! *thumbs up*
Clearly, I needed to set her straight. I pointed my first finger at her in the classic "Now let me tell you something..." pose, but before words could escape my mouth, she innocently said "Oh, only one gun?"
Somewhere in the world, I imagine Charlton Heston is quite pleased with himself.
