Jas: Ei's a Unix wizard, right?
Jas: "Wizard" or "sorcerer" in Japanese is translated to "mahoutsukai" - literally, "magic-user".
Jas: Mahou means magic.
Jas: Ergo, as soon as Ei said what he is, Mahou will Mallet him.
Layer upon layer of puns...
Oh, and a minute or two later it develops that the Japanese term for "Unix wizard" is probably something like "unikusu no mahoutsukai". Fascinating stuff, languages...too bad they're so fscking hard.
