Originating from the word “senpai” (which means “senior” in the Japanese language), the word “paisen” is a slang term for senpai. It is made by switching the two syllables.
McDonald’s Japan rebranded their bacon and potato pie, and there came the Bacon Potato PieSen.
Despite your sen-pie’s crusty outer layer, he has a warm, creamy centre made up of smoky bacon, creamy sauce and potato.
The Piesen will disappear around the middle of May, so let's hope he notices us before then!
