Together with House-Husband, Part 1, Chapter 12 – Riddle

“Here’s the question. What bird is always out of its mind?”
“Ehh…. Ummmm… Uhhhh… Ahh… Hmmm… Ah, ah… Achoo! I-, I sneezed…”
“Ah! I got it! A cuckoo!”
“Correct. Okay, next one. What has many eyes and no mouth?”
“Uh… Umm… An alien?”
“Incorrect. A potato does. Think harder. Thing aren’t as they appear. *smirk*”
“Oooh… Next one, next one!”
“Alright, next question. Where in a house do you breathe harder just by being in it?”
“Ah… Hmm.”
“What is it…”
“Tick, tick, tick, bzzzzt. Time’s up. The answer is a pantry. Too bad.”
”Gaah, I can’t believe it! Next one!”
“Last one, then. Where is love found?”
“Love…? Uhhh…. Errr….”
“Ho ho ho, I’ve got it! In a glove! Love is part of glove!”
”Bzzzt, wrong. Love is found in my big heart that cares for you two.”
“… (*blush*)”
“… (*blush*)” Th-, that’s not fair… You say that stuff now and then, but…”
“Auu… L-, love is in me too!”
“You’re wearing a glove?”
“N-, no!”
“Ooooh, no fair, no fair! Meanie! Are you going to make fun of us forever!?”
“Okay, it’s bed time for kids.” (*hup*)
“Stupid! Dummy!”
“Uuuuu…”

Notes after the jump. These are somewhat essential.

EDIT: Okay after a bit of consideration, the non-literal version seems a little more…fitting translation-wise. Consider it replaced, literal one after the jump.

T/L Note: Whoa, A whole page of puns that can’t really be translated.

1. Original first pun was: What is a bird that is always sneezing? The Japanese sfx for a sneeze is “hakuchu”; swan is “hakuchou”.

2. Second, what has a neck coming out of its mouth? Japanese for Neck is kubi; “akubi” is yawn.

3. Third, where in a house does time speed up and you age immediately? “Rouka” (corridor/hallways), has an alternate kanji for the “rou” in it: old age.

4. In response to the fourth riddle, Rin thinks that Archer is referencing the start of the fifty-character alphabet (read: hiragana) which starts with a, i, “ai” being “love” in Japanese.

Note: Literal Version.
