If you have to ask...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Charlie148626

Then you know its bad.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kiwodaku

It's probably natto.

Things you should never say to your Japanese girlfriend.

Some girls just can't cook.

If you know how to cook, you don't have to get married.

Huh. And here I thought marriage was about mutual respect, love, and life partnership leading to intensive practice of human relations growth in things such as patience, humility, sincerity, and unselfishness. (This training intensifies further after kids.) Also, of course, passing along genes and values to the next generation, assisting in their growth in order to create a better next generation.

Who knew marriage was just about not having to prepare your own meals? I've been enlightened. Guess my spouse is just there to serve me like any other kitchen appliance. I'm single right now, but I'd better make sure my future spouse can cook or I'll be missing the whole point!

I think Km was joking....


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cryopneuma

I was serious-joking. Serious about the concept behind it, but phrased in a humorous way.

Sir! Please stop chewing on the decorative centerpiece!

Or the green plastic 'grass' in your bento


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ashley536237

Or the bento box itself judging by earlier exercises!

I asked 'Is he food?' by accident.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rick728526

If you're hungry enough, sure.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ernesto813220

Try to eat it, if you stay alive for the next 48 hours, then it was food.

This question is what got me kicked out of the nuclear power plant...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/A_Root

Is this a pigeon?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cryopneuma

Practical Japanese for everyday use, huh? (Something tells me this might be rude to ask someone...)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/A_Root

It's a practical question if you're asking about a garnish though. Real dandelion is a popular one with sushi.

"これは食べ物ですか" was not accepted.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/V2Blast

It was accepted for me.
