  1. …[Prime Minister Abe] wishes to jump up Japanese economy.”

    Doesn’t the idiom “jump up” mean to ‘mess up’ in some dialects of English?

  2. Abe will fit right in between the Hello Kitty version and the Hard Gay version.

  3. That dunce Abe not resigned yet ?

    Maybe it’s a subtle clue, ejector seat and all…

    Ever wonder what would happen if Rody, the stallion mated with Hello Kitty, the pirate?

    Wonder no longer.

    They started with Rody, the inflatable riding horse for kids by the Gymnic company that has crossed the oceans to become a popular toy in Japan as well.
    In this game, it’s just like the old Pop Up Pirate where you impale the barrel with swords until the pirate (in this case, a pirate Hello Kitty crossed with a Rody horsehead mask!) pops out of the barrel.
