I often get representitives from Daiichi Pharmaceutical visiting my company here in the UK, next time I get the opportunity I'll say..

sumimasen boku no atama no ue ni usagi ga iru no shitteru nante baka mitai..

すみません ぼくの頭の上にウサギがいるの

And then watch them look at each other thinking :eek:

LOL

ok, it's just not right to do that to a poor, defenseless, little rabbit.

Not right at all...

:)

Hey all Im seeing these really cool phrases....It leads me to direct my question to you all.
I really love the Japanese culture, and have wanted to learn the language, but I am having no success in finding a school here in Texas that teaches Japanese.

"Where can I go, to learn functional Japanese"? I learned spanish and am still learning of course, but that is because you can find many people in the world who speak spanish. I am afraid that many of the "learn Japanese quickly" tapes will teach what I call fake Japanese. Like some of the learn spanish tapes, it is not realistic spanish.

Can anyone lead me?

Arigato!
