Are there any English words that make Japanese-speakers snicker? Like, a word that means one thing in English, but a completely different thing in Japanese?
What made me think of this question [potential adult content warning] -
There’s a gay guy a friend of mine in Japan knows who likes to dress up as a woman and call himself Diana (for 大穴) (I know that’s not how you really even say that). Now I’m imagining the “Biggus Dickus” scene in Life of Brian.
Side note - it must be really hard to think up international brand names that don’t mean something unfortunate in any language.
