No quero...

In Japanese, the word for octopus is tako, pronounced the same as that Mexican delicacy enjoyed by so many chihuahuas.

This was and still is kinda funny to me, but it was especially amusing to my students when I tried to explain what a taco was. One thing I learned in Japan is that they love puns there.

Oh, and tako, not to be confused with taco, is also really disgusting.

Chihauhaus like chalupas.
