That's actually pretty funny.
Depends on how she does it. Still, that's a terrible pun.
Ha! ...you should file that under "It's True" as well- I tried (and horribly failed at) teaching myself Japanese back in the day... I had better luck with LATIN!!!
Best Customer Ever
He's been holding onto that one for a while, I can tell.
He's here all week! Try the veal.
If you have any Captain Picard action figures in your store, they probably facepalmed.
What a loving, supportive boyfriend.
Better he say "Oh sure honey! You're so good I bet you could learn it in three weeks! You're like, just so totally super-cool and not fat in any way!"When I read this cartoon I want to do something that involves raising my hand. I can't tell if it's to high-five him or to whack him upside the head. But if he'd gone for the sappy, patronising option, my response would definitely be the latter. Let him be her 'rock' if she loses a job or a family member or if learning japanese (in a reasonable timeframe) will fulfil her little life and make the planets align. If she proposes some goofy, off-the-cuff, unrealistic goal, I don't think a bit of gentle ribbing wrapped up in a bad pun makes him a kind of horrific verbal-abuse bully grinding down her self-worth like some Hallmark TV movie. She's a big girl; he ain't got to pat her on the head like she was a six-year-old who asks when they can be president.
Sounds like something my husband would say. And my response probably would've been, "That pun was bad and you should feel bad," because reasonable adults in healthy, stable relationships can make playful jabs at each other without having it turn into a screaming dramafest.
Oh cool! You wrote a big long response! That's great! Cuz' when people see a big long response in the comment section they think 'AWESOME! Now I can read some long winded, jerk off prattling on about how ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Uh Wha?

Uh Keep going, we were listening.
There's more than the two extremes of condescension and patronization. He could say, "It's very difficult, and you may have set up unreasonable goals for yourself, but if you work hard, you may find it a rewarding experience, regardless whether or not you succeed."
Are you George Lucas?
That's such a terrible pun that it's awesome, haha.
But he's right - you don't just go RUSSIAN into learning a new language.
The path to fluency is a marathon not an ESPERINTO.
WOW! That was horrible! x_x
Are we still KLINGON to the pun-thread? As a form of humor it's INTERLACking.
Are you Finnish yet?
Sounds (and looks kind of) like my boyfriend...
But kanji learn to write in that time?
