There is a web site I frequent that’s VERY GOOD if you want to learn about Japan. There is a posting they made about Japanese body language – how to express a thought or idea using gestures and body language (much like in the Western world – USA specifically – one would put tip of thumb to nose and perhaps wiggle outstretched fingers meaning “kiss my hinder” or something similar). I found one that reminded me so much of Spike I had to share it!
Sadly, I was unable to both add an illustration of Spike and embed the video in the same posting, but I’m pretty sure you’ll recognize it. I laughed, ’cause it DOES fit!
