Just forget the words and sing along

I always laugh when I read this in the paper.

Edmonton has its annual "Animethon" Japanese animation festival next weekend. First plug appeared in today's paper. Anywho, they mentioned that there'll be a costume contest, or "cosplay," to use the Japanese word.

Now, why does this make me laugh?

When I was in Japan, I only heard the word "cosplay" in connection with porn.

You know, movies where the starlets are dressed as cheerleaders, or strippers with a whole nurse motif, stuff like that.

I constantly wonder if something was lost in translation....
