Cut & Take Line

I didn't find the next word amusing or funny or anything l ike that, but I decided to write about it because I just liked the fact that this word even exists! Of course we can describe the concept with a few words in any other language but to have it's own word... I found that refreshing, somehow.

Japanese: 切り取り線
Reading: kiritorisen
Meaning: line to cut something off along
Literally: cut take line

You know, those dotted lines that start with a drawing of a scissors. I think it's cool they have a specific word for it in Japanese.
That's all.
