These Japanese pope hats read “Yamato Damashi” (Yamato-damashii - Wikipedia)–the traditional way to say “Japanese awesomeness.”

    Sheesh.
    Isn’t it obvious they are SQUID SNACKS…”surume” dried squid drinking snack(Wiki)

    half-dried squid snack
    “….
    One by one carefully dried and freshly-caught squid from the Sea of Japan. Use of natural salt, not dried overnight, dried in a half since I finished, really soft and easy to eat–Bon appétit

  2. What a cool blog all of you got going, especially the oddities of the World Cup 2010. I really like the combination of superficial bawdiness and real-Japan info. It is good to finally find somebody less reverent about crapJapan. I continually enjoy uncovering some realJAPAN presences on the web. Keep it up!

  3. You know what’s creepy about them squidsy squids? They look like human skulls with Cthulhu head ornaments….perhaps Mistah Squidhead World Cuphed turns out like them squids after he’s dead and buried?

    That one dude totally blue himself.

    For the most part, the Japanese cannot get up the energy to get blue.

    The vuvuzelas mostly sat idle during the game while fans clapped and chanted. Some fans dismissed the noisemaker as alien to Japanese culture; a few said that blowing it took too much effort. After the game, which Japan lost 1-0, a stadium worker stood outside the arena and used a megaphone to implore fans to refrain from blowing the vuvuzela.

  5. My money is on Argentina winning this year . . . I think Messii is really going to step up . . . He is the best player in the world. . . . and I know numerous people think otherwise. It would be interesting to know who you guys think is the greatest player.

  6. You’ve posted a good piece. As one blogger to another, I recognise how difficult and how much energy it requires to write up something stupid as this. You have my respect.

  7. THOSE GODLESS JAPANESE HEATHEN STRUMPETS DEFEATED THE PURE CHRISTIAN SOUL AMERICAN QUEENS!”#=0}*(@%& HOW THE FVCK COULD THAT HAVE HAPPENED?!?! IT CANNOT BE EXPLAINED IN ANY WAY! EXCEPT THAT MAYBE THE AMERICANS DID NOT PRAY ON THEIR KNEES HARD ENOUGH. OR MAYBE GOD REALIZED THAT HE OVERREACTED TOO MUCH WITH THE EARTHQUAKE, TSUNAMI AND NUCLEAR DISASTER, SO HE JUST GAVE OUT THE PENALTY SHOTS TO THE LITTLE YELLOW DINKS. GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.
