Kotaku.com | 2013/04/10
The Japanese language and Call of Duty have never gotten along. But in the past, that's been simply due to translation mistakes. That might not be the case here. In the latest downloadable content for Black Ops II, the in-game Japanese is both strange and funny.
Let’s go Postal!
Normally, post offices in Japan are boring affairs like the one shown on the left.

At the end of a business day, any Japanese post office will have more than 10,000,000 yen ($101,854 USD) cash on hand without any armed guards or major security measures.
