(1126) Every day is special


I'm not sure what the doctors say about this but a supermarket in our neighborhood insists: every day is shrimp day -eat them for health and longevity. As regular Nihon Arekore readers will agree, the whole thing wouldn't had been complete without a pun, preferably one involving badly-read English: "every day" is pronounced "eburi day" (エブリデイ) and to the Japanese ear this sounds very close to "ebi day", that is "day of the shrimp".(For the record, this unholy combination would be normally written "海老の日" or "ebi no hi").
