Let’s share some funny / punny phrases in this thread!
I’ve just learned a Japanese phrase that blew me away in its pure “dad-jocularity”:
"There are ten ants."
It’s a jokey way of saying 有り難う.
[As most of you should know, １０（十）can also be read as とお. My guess is that, because that sounds the same as (or close to) とう, that’s why it’s being replaced by the number 10 in the joke phrase.]
So, if you know of any similar examples, please do share!
Oh, btw, I found an already existing pun thread that mentions my example, but I hope it is enough of a difference to my thread, as I’m asking for phrases specifically, rather than one word puns and such.
