Japanese Script

ちゅうもんおおいというのは、レストランがわたしたちにちゅうもんをしているんだ。だから、このレストランはひとにごはんをべさせないんだ。ひとをごはんにしてべるんだ。…だから、わたしたちがべられるということなんだ。」二人ふたりはとてもこわくなりました。「げよう。」「うん、そうしよう。」しかし、いろいドアをけることができません。わりに、二人ふたりべつのドアをつけました。そのドアにはこういてあります。

“よくできました。遠慮えんりょなくはいってください。”

ドアのうしろからおおきなもの二人ふたりています。二人ふたりはじめてしまいました。すると、ものがこういました。「だめだ。あの二人ふたりからだしおをつけていない。かた失敗しっぱいしたのかもしれない。ほんむずかしい。」

English Translation

“Many orders means that the restaurant orders us. So, this restaurant won’t let people coming in eat a meal. This restaurant will make people coming in a meal and eat them. …So, we will be eaten.” They became very scared. “Let’s run away.” “Yes, let’s.” But, they could not open the yellow door. Instead, they found another door. This was written on the door;

“You did very well. Don’t hesitate to enter.”

A big monster was looking at them from behind the door. They started crying. Then, the monster said, “Darn it! They didn’t spread salt on their body. I might have failed with writing. Japanese is difficult.”
