Clubs

A man moved to a new town where everyone had to join a club. His choices were the Determinists' Club and the Free Will Fellowship. He walked into the Determinists' Club. "Why do you want to join us?" they asked him. "It was my decision," he replied, so they kicked him out. He went across the street to the Free Will Fellowship and applied for membership. "Why do you want to join us?" they asked him. "I had no other choice," he replied, so they kicked him of there, too.

This is an old joke. Nowadays, he would also probably have the option of joining the Chaos Theory Marching Band and Chowder Society.



FUTSU
hara(u)
meaning: pay, sweep away, rid
払い出す == haraidasu == drive out
一時払 == ichizibarai == lump sum payment
Left radical is 'hand', right is 'self/nose'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Hand gives sweeping blow to nose to get payment.'
