Know Your Picture Characters Entry #3

May 3rd, 2010 by Wordsman

And the answer is . . . C!  Here are the days of the week in the correct order, starting with Sunday:

日 月 火 水 木 金 土

The days in Japanese, rather than being named after the sun, the moon, and various ancient European deities, are named after the sun, the moon, and the classical Chinese elements.  They are fire (Tuesday), water (Wednesday), wood (Thursday), metal (Friday), and earth (Saturday).

We hereby award 10 MWP’s to A Fan for having the most creative answer, 3 to Dragon for using logic in a situation where there’s no reason to expect it to work, and 2 to Shirley for knowing how to pick her ponies.

And speaking of ponies, this week’s challenge is animals.  Since most of my readers have at least some experience with dogs, let’s see if you can pick the dog out from this lineup.  Bonus points to anyone who wants to try to guess what the other animals are (yes, they’re all animals).

A. 犬 B. 牛 C. 馬 D. 猿 E. 鳥 F. 猫

  1. Dragon Says:

    I honestly have no idea on this one, but I’m gonna go with C because it kinda looks like it has four legs and a tail.

  2. A Fan Says:

    A. This pictures a despairing man with a gun to his head. He obviously owns four cats, like my crazy brother.

    E. This is a dinosaur sitting at a table in a ramen noodle shop. He’s angry about the poor service, and there will be trouble soon.

    F. This is the dog, based on Japanese fondness for the Western song “How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?” You can see the man outside the window counting his money, which is that weird money-on-a-string that they have in some Asian country. The dog, behind the window, is implied. Very subtle.

  3. Shirley Says:

    This is embarrassing. I decided to get this one on my own and pick it without consulting Dragon, and lo and behold, after I made my choice,I checked.
    I had picked Dragon’s choice and for the very same reason: 4 legs and a tail. Could it be that I have no mind of my own? SCARY!
