Hallelujah!!! I just cannot stop laughing!
GTS is a loyal listener of WBBM780 for AM and 103.5KISS FM. Every morning on the way to COD, I try to get the latest News from WBBM and get ready for that day. Now is the holiday season and every company tries to catch as many customers as possible by making a "Creative Unique Commercial." People in IL knows a carpet company called "LUNA" (I don't get any commission from them unfortunately) made a recent commercial song in this holiday season and it goes: HalleluNA! HalleluNA! (must be the combination of Hallelujah! and LUNA!) To my Japanese ears, it always sounds "HARERUNA(はれるな)" (Prohibit command form of HARERU (clear up:SORA GA HARERU The sky clears up). So in a so cheerful voice, my car radio says "Don't clear up! Don't clear up!" on the slick road on a very snowy or rainy gloomy day. "No wonder gloomy days don't want to go away because "THE GOD" in this 'Christian'-oriented society is indeed so loyal to HIS people" As a Buddhist with little interest protected by 8 million Shinto deities, it is comical and I do enjoy a little secretly! (There is no intention of insulting any religious groups or thoughts as GTS family always knows!)
