A Japanese Riddle

I have a whole bunch of jokes created at the Japanese people's expense... and while I think they are funny - because every joke usually picks on someone or something people care about - I have decided to shelve them.

But what I do have, is an English written version of a Japanese riddle. It's non-offensive, though I suppose someone might find something offensive about it.

Here we go:

A Japanese ship sinks in the waters off Tokyo Bay. There is only one lifeboat. How many people are saved?

Nine people.

The explanation: In the Japanese language, the word for lifeboat is "kyuu-mei".
It is also Japanese for "nine people". 

See... fun. Unless you know someone in that ship that sank... or hate lifeboats.
