Here in San Francisco, there were a bunch of Moony women hanging around a certain street corner with a lot of tourists for a while. It didn't take me long to figure out that there were all Japenese and only spoke enough English to say there lines. Most of what I said to them was not understood.
There routine was: They would talk about how happily they were married and show my pictures of theire husband and kids to prove it. They would ask if I was married, and if I said no, they would invite me to join a match making service. If I said yes, they wanted to bless my relationship. Either way, they wanted my name, adress and phone number.
After a few times I was able to recongize them, So when I saw one walking towards me, I said one of the few phraises I know in Japanese (from haing had a Japanese wife). "Sore wa Hentai Des nei?" It means "this is a pervert, isn''t it?"
When she heard me (a caucasion) say the phrase, she gasped loudly, and I could tell that, for a moment at least, I had broken through her bubble.
