Tokyo train freaks

As I have said many times before, You Can Never Have Enough HELLO KITTY—Am I right or what?

(I stumble across sights like this at least once a month on the train and I wish I had Google Glass to capture the fun.)

  1. Duuuude, that Hello Kitty Guy is built like a brick shithouse. Do you think anybody would say booshit ’bout his fashion choice?

  2. There are a lot of train freaks in Japan. The last runs of the original Shinkansen trains and overnight blue trains drew huge crowds. A large number of mothers were in the crowds as they brought their children to satiate their interest in trains. Tickets for the debut run of the new Tohoku Shinkansen Hayabusa’s were scalped for over $4,300—23 times their original price—each. Tickets for the run sold out in 20 seconds.

  3. This is terrifying to look at; we can’t image how it must have felt (or smelt like) from inside the train.

  4. An empty sack cannot stand upright—A full sack of shit shouldn’t.

  5. This city is just wonderful. Its the NEW YORK City of Asia. New York had its time with freaks in the Subway and on its streets. But now they are gone. Bless all my people of this sort. Australia and the rest of the USA is nothing more than a BARN and a SHED.
