if you challenge me, i will accept.
get him a box of tissues. i'm not sure how well being a wise ass translates into the japanese language and culture, but ive got to figure it will give him a hint. you can do it anonymously, or just swagger on over there and hand them to him, NE style, with your huge american fists.
otherwise, there was some talk in the drunk lang about whiskey curing the common cold. you could pour him a glass..
Hah, those are some good ideas. If he leaves, and I get a little bit more drunk, I might just pull of the tissue gaf.
