This is sick (cue Janet Jackson's "All Night")

This is sick, but David posted this in my comments section back in December, and I didn't understand it at all, but now I do:

If you think =you've= got pronoun trouble, try this one: "Koshikakesaserarehajimetagaranakattarashii."

My Modern Japanese Lit prof claimed he'd heard one usher say that to another at a theater. Translation: "It's almost as if they didn't want us to start seating them."

Weird, weird, weird.

Progress, I guess.

But I have to admit, if someone said it at natural speed to me, I probably wouldn't catch it all. Reading it, though, I can definitely understand.

Maybe in another four months I'll be able to hear it all at once too.
