comment The significance of 前 {まえ} in Japanese language and culture
We have that expression in English, too. "I eat _s like you for breakfast." Just add a negative-meaning noun.

comment What does MC mean in Japanese?
Dave: I think you're misunderstanding me. The term MC is from English, but no one would ever use it to describe musicians speaking to the audience between songs. It gained that meaning in Japanese. I'm both a musician and a native English speaker, so I think I should know!

comment What does MC mean in Japanese?
It's 和製英語 in the sense that Sawa is describing it, since no native English speaker would describe between-song banter as MC'ing.
