Traditionally Japanese people eat various kinds of rice balls and maki rolls (left) in lieu of sandwiches.
Therefore, this advertisement for the newly-released “Smart Han,” by Takara – Tomy Arts Corporation, for making rice balls to put in your Japanese bento/lunchbox looks quite normal…
On closer inspection, the Smart Han’s retro-looking drawings appear to be a little weird, but hey it’s Japan. On closer inspection, graphics start to reveal all sorts of odd engrish phrases such as: “Screw up storage” and “Hand Job!” ↓
