Easter Eel

You see, children, the Easter Eel leaves eggs for all the girls and boys!

So, on the way back from lunch today a colleague, Damien, said that the weirdest (or was it funniest?) conversation he'd had in Japanese consisted of a Japanese person asking him what Easter was, and he said something along the lines of, "Well ... Jesus died and then rose 3 days later," and the Japanese person responsed, "He did?!". Ur, so, I said, "I would have started with eggs and bunnies," and then I said the words in Japanese, only I got it a letter wrong and said, "Tamago and Unagi". Oops! Unagi is eel. Usagi is bunny--ur, rabbit. :) Thus started the legend of the Easter Eel ... and now it's history.
