Shiba 柴

Japanese, means brushwood. It usually won't be punny or anything. However...

Shi'ba 시바
Sshi'ba 씨바 (stronger tongue on S)

Korean, it's an expression of exclamation, derived from the infamous insult among the locals. And that insult has quite a trip to trace back through the history of Korean language.....
TL;DR:
The very origin has the meaning of F-word.
(Fun fact: The expression has nothing to do with Japanese)


Besides, some of you may know the Japanese dog species, Shiba Inu 柴犬 (Shiba Dog), which is more well known via the famous Shibe Doge meme.

Now, the meme itself is funny to some extent, and here we have this 씨바, which translates to "F○○○"(exclamation) nowadays.... Yeah it's funny to me as a Korean @w@


Lastly, anything pronounced similar to Shi'ba, Shi'va, C'ba, C'va, etcetc. has chances to bring me awkward smiles. >p<

For example...

Shiver
시벌
So I believe 'Chiva' in spanish will make you smile awkwardly too! ;3

Although in Spanish we don't use a lot of 'sh's hehe

You mean "GHOTI", that's how you spell "fish" really, that's why it's such a funny word!

Really, I mean it, totally phonetically, G-H-O-T-I spells "fish"

Take the sound of "gh" in the word "enough", and you get the "F" sound.
Take the sound of "o" in the word "women" and you get the "I" sound.
Take the sound of "ti" in the word "nation", and you get the "SH" sound.

Ergo..."ghoti" spelled "fish"! <lol>


Isn't the English language just all rightly messed up? Even the word phonetically isn't spelled phonetically.
