Don't Touch My Mustache


Brian was telling me yesterday how to say "You're welcome" in Japanese. Well, I learned a little bit of movie trivia in the process. In Toy Story2, when Al (the guy who took Woody from the yard sale), hangs up the phone with the Japanese investor, he says "Don't touch my mustache." This refers to an English mnemonic for the Japanese phrase meaning "You're welcome": "Dou itashimashite." :) And, I just know you are SO glad I shared that with you.

LOL. My beloved was in Iwakuni years ago and has said "Don't touch my mustache" (and the Japanese phrase) ever since.

How neat that you know Lisa. Please tell her that I said hello. We knew each other years ago in SC. It's always such fun to see just how small the military world is.

Hope y'all enjoy your week.

Wow...great trivia! I have a special memory for jokes, puns, and trivia, and this is definitely one I will spout at some point.

I totally realized the same thing when Bobby went through his Buzz'n'Woody phase a few months back. :D Nice to know I am not the only one who did.
