Bag hag’s Boston Bag

Thinkbay®’s Cute Dog Handbag
, which they refer to by the more-than-a-mouthful term, said-openCrossbody Clutch Purse Shoulder Bag Cartoon Puppy Satchel,said-closed is quite remarkable.

More remarkable is the alien bag hag (urban dictionary) shown below modeling their Boston Bull (Wiki) bag.

Although Thinkbay®’s designs appeal to Japan tastes and their advertising features Japanese text, Thinkbay describes themselves as,
said-opena little team with five young guys who are full-time working on eBay,said-closed out of Hong Kong. Therefore the alien bag hag could just be an example of over-the-top Chinese plastic surgery.

Antonio Inoki died for our sins

Hey, it’s Good Friday — Antonio Inoki has gone on the Cross for your sins.

easter entrance on the cross Antonio-Inoki

The Easter-ish looking MMA–Mixed Martial Arts entrance is by Antonio Inoki, the first pro-wrestler in Japan to be elected to the Japanese parliament (3Yen 2005-07-11). Details are explained by the blog, Playing Ricky Morton
sidebar spacer-QUOTEr graphic

 
a New Year’s Eve MMA cards from Japan, Dream Genki Desu Ka… this was an evening of MMA.
After a worked match between Josh Barnett and Hideki Suzuki, Inoki was carried from the entrance ramp to the ring tied to a cross. Upon reaching the ring, he was let down from the cross and picked up a bucket of paint. Inoki begins to paint some Japanese symbol in the ring while cutting a promo simultaneously, possibly to mark another one of his retirements. This is interrupted by a run-in committee of guys in turbans who start beating Inoki down with kendo sticks, apologize, raise his hand in victory and then give him a kendo stick before leaving the ring peacefully.

Kumamon did it!

bird_flu_text H5-type bird flu discovered at two Kumamoto farms
Japan Times | Apr. 13, 2014
The agriculture ministry announced Sunday a suspected outbreak of bird flu that killed at least 1,100 chickens at a farm in Taragi, Kumamoto Prefecture, prompting the prefectural government to order the culling of 112,000 chickensmore

Hiyoko-chan
As shown in the scandalous photo below, Kumamon (3Yen / 2013-11-13) the mascot bear of Kumamoto Prefecture must have caused this outbreak of H5 Avian Flu.

No doubt that Kumamon consorting in unnatural ways with young Kumamoto chicks like “Hiyoko-chan” (R), packaged Chicken Ramen mascot.

A tree grown from a cherry pit that traveled in space five years ago with astronaut Koichi Wakata, now commander of the International Space Station, has bloomed far ahead of what is normal–to the astonishment of botanists.
