Aegagropila being disgusted —“Captain Compilation” 380 yen
The Captain represents a the great compilations of “marimo” balls. These balls found in only a few lakes in the world are a kind of algae —cladophora aegagropila —that grows into a circular balls.
The marimo are shown below are in Akan Lake in Hokkaido, the north island of Japan.
As the Rakuten shopping site says: “These products are gathered with taste…when we sell this commodity, the store manager rejoices. It is rapture. Consider the mental welfare of our employees and please buy this commodity.”
And, the infamous Lord Pongi of RobPongi.com reminded me that of the fact that Japan has a postage stamp commemorating Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Scum!
