Pronunciation: ha like in haha + no means no + chi like in chi-gong.

Sentence: Damn, three hanochis in one day - time for a look in the sun... didn't work ? My doctor said: "If you got more than 5 hanochis per week you should reactivate your nose-chi by playing with uncooked spaghetti in your nostrils." That works for sure - no more hanochi !

Etymology: hatschi = german comic word to display a sneeze; nochi = the hatschi has no chi, it is missing the necessary energy to break through the sneeze-barrier. so, always ultra-remember: spaghettchi vs. hanochi .
