Okay, Osama's bad beard. It's a disgrace. I mean, what kind of terrorist mastermind uses Just For Men on his beard?

I've got a theory. Did you know that at one time the OSS tried to pay off a gardener to slip estrogens into Hitler's carrots? The idea was to make his mustache fall off. Didn't work, the gardener took the money and threw away the estrogen.

So here's my theory: the CIA got through to Osama's gardener.





REN


meaning: honest, cheap, angle

廉価 == renka == (noun, adjective that takes な) low price
清廉 == seiren == (noun) honesty, integrity, purity and unselfishness




Left/outer radical is 'building'. Inner radical is 'combine' (兼), here acting phonetically to express 'steep/sheer'. This character originally meant 'building with towering steep walls'; its current meanings are borrowed. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: ''Cheap building combines angles.''
