Dragon Ball Z question
In the original Japanese version, what were the jokes told by Goku and Ten Shin Han to Kaiō-sama?
I haven't seen the English dub so if someone remember them can say it too. I've seen the Latin American version and they make no sense. I guess these originally were untranslatable puns.
Goku:I sold my car....FOR GAS MONEY

If you wanna know them go to Nicktoon's site and watch "King Kai's Bizarre training" I don't remember them all but, I remember two.
Right from the official subtitles:
GokŻ (Dragon Ball Z #19): "M-my futon...flew away, gone! My feline has gone supine! My stylus is sightless!"
Tenshinhan (Dragon Ball Z #52): "You think up your nose is secret, but it's (s)not!!"

Reason: Changed wording.
Quoting the subtitles doesn't really work here. They aren't quite literal in this scene, seeing how Daimao had to adapt the puns so they'd make sense in English. I only remember the first one Goku said, though... "Futon ga futtonda!" (My futon flew away", but the pronounciation makes it sound like he's saying "Futon ga futon da", "My futon is a futon".)

Yeah, I agree. The subs was the closest thing I could offer, though.
