Amusing Japanese class snippet o' the week

Izumi-sensei hands out a bunch of pictures of people doing things, and tells us to make up sentences based on what they're doing. She wants us to use the English nouns if we haven't been taught the appropriate Japanese ones, but nobody's particularly comfortable with that.

Girl in an Inuyasha t-shirt comes up to me; neither of us is willing to start. Finally...
Me: otaku desu?

She seems surprised by the question for a moment, then
Her: hai. *smiles*

She walks off to find someone else to be awkward with.

No idea why that's so amusing, but it is...

[edit]
Liz: you should have grabbed her hands and asked her to bear your child in Japanese
Liz: XD

If there's one line in Japanese that would be amusing to use in class, that would be it.
