"Did you pay a lot for your mawashi?"
"Naw, I always pick them up when they are half off."

Posted by: Rodney Dill at July 21, 2005 07:03 PM

Rodney... is mawashi the name for those underware things they are wearing? (or shall I say outerware) You are so smart!...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at July 22, 2005 07:04 AM

I'm smart enough to type in
www.google.com and describe what I want to know.
I didn't know it until I looked it up.

Where is Wunderkraut? I hope he has not been lost in the cracks!...

"I'm about to go medieval on your ass with a nukular wedgie."

"Is it safe?"

"What's the frequency Kenneth?"

"Does this mawashi make me look fat?"

"The horrors of Gitmo interrogations revealed tonight on 60 Minutes."

"Pull my red string."

"Nice mawashi."

Philologists are still stumped by the etymology of the ancient Wendish word sumo, which can be loosely translated as a metaphor for elevated political discussion, and how it somehow also made its way to medieval Japan virtually unchanged in pronouncation and semantics.

Posted by: charles austin at July 23, 2005 08:14 AM

"You had me at 'hello.'"

"You don't understand the power of the Dark Wedgie."

"Hey, this thing really DOES 'lift and separate!'"


Posted by: Jay Tea at July 24, 2005 10:33 AM

"Thorsten, how do you keep your canvas sumo-thong so clean and white?"

"It's easy Robert, ever since I started washing them with new and improved 'Skids-Be-Gone'."
