Monday nights I take Japanese lessons. This past Monday, we reviewed numbers between ten and a hundred. I'd learned them before, but I hadn't noticed one in particular: fifty-five.
I remember fifty-five as the maximum speed limit nationwide, a long time ago when I was a lad.
Ten in Japanese is "juu," and five is "go." The Japanese way of saying fifty-five is five-ten-five.
Spoken aloud, it sounds exactly like "Go, Jew, go!"
I wasted not one second in notifying Marcia of the good news.
