Whoa, a bit of an old thread...but it's still a very nice one =)

I don't hear "gyunyu" very often. Only "MIRUKU" (I'm not emphasizing what I'm saying, mind you. It's a habit when it comes to katakana to put things in caps for me )...I guess it's because they like using English words more and more, haha

Ah, "okashi" actually means "confectionate; cake". "Candy" is "ame" or "KYANDEE". And I think by "okashi" for "funny", you went by the noun version of that word. "Okashii" is the adjective for "funny"
