Japanese-only sign again
You might remember that last March (3Yen / 2014-03-09) Japanese soccer had big ruckus about racist banners that were hung up at the stadium reading “JAPANESE ONLY” (see right).

Well now it’s “JAPANESE ONLY” all over again—Peaceful resident aliens were ejected from a Japanese baseball game yesterday!

Bag hag’s Boston Bag

boston-bag
Thinkbay®’s Cute Dog Handbag
, which they refer to by the more-than-a-mouthful term, said-openCrossbody Clutch Purse Shoulder Bag Cartoon Puppy Satchel,said-closed is quite remarkable.

More remarkable is the alien bag hag (urban dictionary) shown below modeling their Boston Bull (Wiki) bag.

Available on Amazon.com
.

Although Thinkbay®’s designs appeal to Japan tastes and their advertising features Japanese text, Thinkbay describes themselves as,
said-opena little team with five young guys who are full-time working on eBay,said-closed out of Hong Kong. Therefore the alien bag hag could just be an example of over-the-top Chinese plastic surgery.
