Once night after dinner, one of the rare time that Japanese colleagues joined us, we decided we wanted soft cream. That's just soft service ice cream. I mentioned I knew of a 24 hour soft cream place. We were baffled by their business plan. But what the heck. When we arrived I noticed all the fancy machines inside for dispensing ice cream. They looked like washing machines. They WERE washing machines. It was a 24 hour laundromat. Through the R/L confusion and M/N confusion CLEAN became CREAM. Oops. If only I had read the katakana (koin randorii). The scoops I saw were bubbles I guess.
