“Duck”? It’s possible, perhaps.

At home, the Japanese Christmas goose should be going in the oven now. It’s a Japanese “goose” that could be large, mislabeled, Muscovy duck rather than a goose because Japanese often confuse the two…鴨しれない。*

*Pun on the word “duck.” Normally, the Japanese word for duck is kamo /鴨. However, in the phrase かもしれない/かも “Kamo shirenai” it means “It’s possible, perhaps.”

One thought on ““Duck”? It’s possible, perhaps.”
