*Note that the Santa who is embracing the shark is a female staff member (3Yen / 2007-12-17) of Sunshine Aquarium wearing heavy waterproof makeup.

Well, they did show some sensitivity by spelling coolie* incorrectly.
COOLly does it all!
From the top left, the instructive graphic above reads: ↑
“DRY,” full of purple polka dots, anti-cooties, “SOFTo,”
“COOL,” radioactive, stretchy, sniffs your armpits,
silver infused, full of dead fish, foreigner friendly, and blocks UV rays.

Long-time contributor to the 3Yen, MARKed TRAIL, just sent us this hot robotics tip…
Here’s a continuation of your story, Finally, Japan invents a *useful* robot (3Yen / 2013-02-15).
What MARKed TRAIL is refering to is the cruel joke that ALL of Japan’s robots failed to help in the nuke plant meltdown (3Yen / 2011-04-05). That is, Japan has spent trillions of both corporate and public money on robot development, but did no have any robots capable of helping in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster*.

…Japan is currently under threat by Limax Maximus: a giant slug with a distinctive leopard-print skin…can be found increasing at an alarming rate.
As Japanese netizens read the headline, almost unanimously, comments of “It’s Eleking!” echoed like the horrific memories of the nation’s previous encounters with alien slugs…Although, Ultraman had defeated Eleking…it returned several times…more…
Eleking (Wiki) is, of course, a space kaiju/monster from the Japanese TV series, Ultra Seven, and who then reappeared in the series Ultraman Taro ← (Hey, “Taro” is my name!).
