Know Your Picture Characters Entry #5

May 17th, 2010 by Wordsman

The correct answer was F, though not because it’s a dollhouse.  I could tell you where the character for mother comes from, but it could be seen as somewhat vulgar, and besides, the picture’s sideways anyway.  The television is the character for older brother, the frazzled aerial means younger brother, and the Boy Scout weenie roast means father.  The two similar-looking ones are, appropriately enough, older sister and younger sister (B and C, respectively).  200 points to everyone who participated, and 153 to everyone who didn’t.

But now let’s move on to your next challenge.  I was recently reminded that several friends of mine just finished their first year of med school.  So let’s see if you’re up on your anatomy.  Can you pick out the nose?  Don’t worry, it’s as plain as . . . whew, just caught myself there.

A. 顎 B. 頭 C. 顔 D. 口 E. 鼻 F. 耳 G. 目

    I’m going to say E, because it looks vaguely triangular, and noses are vaguely triangular, I guess?

  2. A Fan Says:

    D, because that is the plain one, and WW’s joke about “as plain as” was actually a Freudian slip (do they have those in Japan?) revealing the correct answer.

    E is shaped like a nose with two little things that could be two nostrils with– oh, never mind.
