qroqqa commented on the word bakkushan
From English back + German schön "beautiful", weirdly compounded in Japanese. As a (supposedly) foreign word it is written in katakana.
This reminds me of an Ogden Nash verse (admittedly back to front):Sure, deck your lower limbs in pants:Yours are the legs, my sweeting.You look divine as you advance;Have you seen yourself retreating?
