    I’m amazed Furukawa Sanae of anime “Clannad” didn’t come up with it with pampshade (the Japanese word for bread actually comes from the Portuguese word for it which is pão).

    The Hyrax is related to the Elephant.

    Boy, Bermuda is farther from Florida than I thought. I kept thinking it was near the Bahamas. Obviously the Beach Boys threw me off.

    is the oft-repeated story, yet the spanish word for bread, “pan,” is identical to the japanese word and makes much more sense…

    Was gonna say that, tho the Portuguese word as pronounced is close to “pan” than it looks. Also, in Japanese, a terminal n or m sound (at the end of syllable) is essentially the same letter/character/sound, so “pan” or “pam” could both be acceptable transliterations. (I’ve seen one show where a character’s name was rendered “Shin-bo” or “Shim-bo” from one episode to the next.)
