This is your brain. This is your brain on AIM at midnight with a Japanese speaker.

Jas: Heh.... if Mahou ever met Ei, though, she'd nearly instantly mallet him.
Brent: Why?
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.
