So whatever it was he said, it wasn't nice in Japanese either.

Posted in: Mori slammed for critical remarks about Asada See in context

slumdog Mori is such a moron that I almost wish that story was true, but it isn't.

No, it isn't. Goodness, even now someone brought this "Who are you"-to-Clinton joke even these days! I heard this story from a Japanese Rakugo-Ka many years ago, as a beginning joke of his performance to warm up the audience. It went like this. Mori wasn't really a good English speaker, but Mori wanted to do his best, so one of his staff told him what to say in the first few minutes in greeting Clinton then his interpreter would intervene. When he was meeting Clinton Mori just had to remember two sentences "How are you?" and "Me too." to follow after Clinton would say "I'm fine.How are you?". Then there is Clinton. Mori became so nervous, then he slipped the first sentence then made a mistake asking Clinton "Who are you?", this question surprised Clinton as so unexpected, but recovering from it, he replied with a smile. "I'm Hilary's husband." This time Mori correctly said, "Me too.".
