Therefore, ordinary citizen in Osaka also know what is comedy and humor. They understand it well so if you say some stupid things in front of them, they will counterstrike with word “Nandeyanen!” (means “why you say that!)

Sometime Japanese television interview to people in Osaka and ask them what is difference from Tokyo, they answer “We are different from them, and comedian from Osaka are more interesting than one of Tokyo”

Like these,  people in Osaka has spirit if rivalry to Tokyo.

It also interesting and we love Osaka as humorous town.
