I figured the above poster was just a Photoshop—But nope, it’s real. So, I helped Goji-chan make something more over-the-top.

Aiming to give a boost to the main opposition party’s presidential poll, the party plans to hold a public online vote to pick the successor to Minshu-kun, the official mascot of the Democratic Party of Japanmore...


After more than seven years of faithful employment, the Democratic Party’s mascot “Minshu-kun” (民主くん) has been given abrupt notice of termination in September, However, Minshu-kun may have found alternative employment opportunities with TENGA Co., Ltd. as you can see below,

The vultures gather over the Japan quake(s)

It’s still shaking here—more than 400 aftershocks since the initial quake–In fact the official name for it is the "Kumamoto Earthquakes" (Wiki).

To add to the "fun" are the a zillions scammers sending out fake spam appeals for money for the Kumamoto relief efforts, grrr.

second-harvest It’s best to trust the established, locally-based charities such as: Second Harvest Japan, JAL’s Kumamoto Earthquake Relief Effort Miles, Japan’s Community Chest Japan, Japanese Red Cross Society

The authorities are wisely pleading for nobody to physically help. Specifically, Kumamoto Prefectural government is saying:

“The kindness of people wanting to volunteer and send goods is much appreciated, but please wait until we are ready to do so.”

In past disasters, volunteers came to help without proper transportation or lodging, and they just added to the mess.

Rear view of Japan

Yesterday’s post, reminded everyone to, Check out this Sanio character’s Butthole.
In response our faithful reader “Coligny” observed, “Your obsession with yuru chara bungholes is disturbing…” toyocky drawing kime which refers to our previous exchange (3Yen 2012-12-09) about his local “loose character” (yuru chara) “Toyocky,” the mascot of Toyohashi City.

Of course, Sanio character’s and “Toyocky” aren’t the only bungholy mascots in Japan.

There’s “Nagomi Shibakko” character of Kyoto who keeps things tidy and puckered up.

Japan’s “Mr. Bowling” also keeps things tidy, well zipped up, and on-the-down-low (お尻もなかなかプリティです).

Much like Mr. Bowling, the loose character of Ehime Prefecture, buttless “Baryi,” also keeps things tightnright with its bunghole biscuit plug (far right).

Here’s the character “Poo” (ぽぉ) of Iida City. A ripe mango? (“完熟マンゴー?”)

It looks like the above “Poo” character needs the services of the “AssFinger” mascot to hold things in.

Better yet, the “PIAnisiki”(ぴあにしき) mascot has TWO bungholes!

Mukku, of the children’s TV show “Hirake! Ponkiki(3Yen 2010-08-30) takes it up the p00pchute.

Red Cross Japan‘s mascot, “Red Poop* Boy” (赤フン坊や) has a costume malfunction in his nether regions.

Can anyone else think of Japanese masscot (sic) mischief in the lower regions?
