Kotowaza of the day: The road to heaven is paved with Advertising Dollars


Kiite gokuraku mite jigoku

Meaning of Japanese:
Paradise (heaven) on hearsay, hell on sight
Sounds like heaven but looks like hell

English equivalent:
Fame is a liar

What's with the lack of posts, Daily Soy? Are you too busy nurturing your tomogochi to bother providing us with sorely needed aphorisms? Get on the ball!

I second Mun's plea for more kotowaza. Your audience eagerly awaits....
