Oh the Horror! The ‘Cool Japan’ Expo in Paris is full of K-pop!

The quickest way to insult a Japanese is to say they’re Korean and vice versa. The two groups despise each other. So, you can imagine how horrified the the Japanese reporter in this news segment was to find K-pop being promoted at the Japanese government sponsored “Cool Japan” Expo in Paris.
Of course, how could the French know the difference between K-poop and J-poop?

In case you were wondering what the joke is all about…
The satanic passport is a parody of the Japanese passport (right), and Roppongi Hills has Japan’s highest concentration of foreign firms and whinging* foreign employees.

*For most part, they’re rightfully whinging
employees since Japan has an unenviable
working (& living) situation compared to
the upper-middle class environment that
the foreigners came from (or aspire to).

Japanese baseball “sekuhara,” again

Brisky-getting-frisky-again Nippon-Ham-Fighters japan baseball
 
 
Our report on the mascot Brisky getting frisky at a Nippon Ham Fighters baseball game (3Yen / 2005-08-20) has been an all-time favorite with readers. That is to say, sekuhara/sekuhara—the Japanese-engrish abbreviation for sexual harassment—is the national pastime in Japan like baseball.

Just recently I noticed that Brisky-kun has some real competition in the pervy department.
Move over for the hot babe “Buffalo Bell“— The new bovine kigurimi mascot of the Orix Buffaloes baseball team has proven such a sensation that she has attracted her own up-skirt problems

Mt Fuji is ready to spew!

MT-FUJI-ERUPTION
embiggen

The Huffington Post | 07/17/2014

Mount Fuji is primed to spew.

mount fuji spew text
“Our work does not say that the volcano will start erupting, but it does show that it’s in a critical state,” lead author Florent Brenguier, a researcher at the Institute of Earth Sciences in Francemore...

The last time Mt. Fuji blew was the Hōei eruption was in 1707 and comparatively not many people lived nearby and no deaths (Wiki). Today, a larger eruption would affect a 80km radius—Several million people could be hit because the base of Mt. Fuji is now an urban area of the city of Gotemeba. One estimate predicts that a major eruption would cause 750,000 refugees (Japan Today / 2014Feb09).
