辻斬り is one of my favorite japanese words ive learned for the sheer ridiculousness of the definition: "killing a passerby in order to test a new sword​" i can just imagine dudes killing other dudes for absolutely no reason other than to test the cutting power of their new katana and it makes me laugh. my favorite recent word is 一丸となって though because it sounds cool and is fun to shout at people when theyre uncoordinated. makes me feel like some old sensei or something i dunno. fun question though!

oh and i read yours as ペンを食べる at first and i laughed because i thought you were making fun of the classic, "これはペンです" so thanks for that.

Funny thing is that I think I can read what you wrote, which could be sign that I'm learning some Japanese, good luck on your studies mate! By the way my favorite thing to say is ちょっとまってください。

With my level of studying right now, I've learned enough to have "これはアメリカです" be my favourite thing to say.

Not any particular phrase or word is my favourite. But I find this Bakemonogatari Black Hanekawa tongue twister really appealing and funny: "斜め七十七度の並びで泣く泣く嘶くナナハン七台難なく並べて長眺め"

Here is the video of the tongue twister: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlwVBKs5T_E

My favorite is そうじゃなくて。I've never had a chance to use it, but I like how it sounds.

It must be ほんとうに because I tend to exaggerate a bit and then I need to explain. I also like the form します because it reminds me of a Finnish word "simasuu".

I like this:

なめんじゃねえよ!

I know it is angry and impolite, but the sound of the phrase is really nice.

Wouldn't say it's my favourite thing to say, but when I started learning Japanese one of the first words I learned in katakana was ホットドッグ. I didn't know what katakana was used for at the time so it came as quite a surprise how non-Japanese words remain more or less the same, and seemed to just be crowbarred in to kana. It really made me smile and want to learn more about how the language works!
