Here is a fascinating and mysterious pencil. Take a close look – it is a gold pentagonal pencil!
If this explanation has errors, please forgive me. Any errors are on my part.
Some Japanese-English vocabulary:
?? – Goukaku – to pass an examination
?? – Gokaku – pentagon
This pencil is thus a visual pun!
My sincere thanks to isu of the uncomfortable chair for this unique pencil and assistance in unravelling the hidden meaning!
