He he... good one.

Reminds me of one time during kendo-practice.... we usually did some warming up including jumping up and down on the spot - then switching to jumping back and forth and from side to side. She shift in direction was announced in japanese so jumping sideways was simply called 'yoko' - might not be proper japanese but we loved the 'authensicity' of the sound . At one time a japanses foreign student joined our little dojo, and her name happend to be - well you guessed it - 'Yoko'. Imagine our expression when she first did warm up with us and replied to the 'yoko' command with a loud 'Hai ?'
