As I have written before*, according to Japanese law everything must have a cute mascot—a yuru-kyara / —literally a ‘loose character’ or ‘floppy mascot’. And, the No. 1 in the mascot popularity polls in Japan is “Funassyi,” the official unofficial character Funabashi City, which is next to Tokyo. (wikipedia.org).
So, imagine my surprise to see that Funassyi suddenly has a brother “Funagoro” who at his first press conference today pissed* all over the reporters…(Click to watch the video of the “pisser presser”)…
The puerile pissing* action starts at the 6min 20sec point of the video.

*Ok, ok, Funagoro didn’t really piss on the press. He and Funassyi are supposed to be pears and pears can get infested with worms. Funagoro has a green caterpillar up his butt that shoots silk with he gets excited.
