An homage to the Pythons
#11
Quote:A mama-san or mamasan is usually a woman in a position of authority, especially one in charge of a geisha house or bar or nightclub in Japan and East Asia.
The term is also used to refer to a woman who works in a supervisory role in certain establishments in Southeast Asia, typically those related to drinking places. Papa-san may be used to refer to a man in a similar position.
The term is a combination of the English word "Mama" and the Japanese suffix -san which is a polite honorific attached to a person's name or title, coined by U.S. soldiers in Japan after World War II. This probably has had some influence in its spread to other Southeast Asian countries.

I've been to Viêtnam more than once, speak the language and perfectly understand how words travel.  I suppose you think because I wasn't "in Nam" means you know more about the culture than I. All I can tell from your drivel is you frequented whore houses.

Make up your mind.  Were you there or weren't you?  I doubt you were there and whatever you know was gleaned from Wikipedia in about 15 seconds.

Your buddy first says she was there and then she says she wasn't.  Do you know which it is?  She ain't sayin'

Being deliberately obtuse is so unbecoming.

Folks, I'm afraid that poor old Mr. BAA just flat out doesn't get it.  Usual fare for him however.  Nuanced conversation tends to baffle him so he must then resort to the common tactics of his kind.
