Yafu 「ヤフー」 is Yahoo
Do you know what Yafu is? Well now I know what Yafu is.
Here is how I learned what Yafu is:
One time when I was riding on a train in Japan with a co-worker, he was telling me the news about Microsoft plans to buy Yafu.
“What is Yafu?”, I asked him.
He just answered, “Yafu, don’t you know what is Yafu, the search engine”.
I am guy who do not want to be labelled as someone who knows less, so I think hard.
Even still not convinced of my answer, I answered proudly, “Is it Yahoo?”.
“Yes, yes”, he answered while laughing.
Phew. Good grief.
New word learned, Yafu「ヤフー」 is Yahoo.
