Ya gotta love the Japanese news for fun stuff like this dead nurse cum Real Doll®…
Japan woman’s body sent by mail marked ‘doll’
The New Straits Times | 26 May 2014
….detectives were today investigating the case of a young nurse whose corpse was sent …across Japan in a box that claimed to contain a doll.
The body of Rika Okada was found in a storage lock-up in Tokyo.
Investigators also found the 2-metre (6ft 6in) box in which it had been transported from the southern city of Osaka…The delivery service that ferried the package — marked with the Japanese word for ’doll’ — 400 kilometres (230 miles) to the capital had been paid in Okada’s own name. The bill for the lock-up’s short term rental had been settled using her credit card.

The contest is actually of photos of cute animal backsides, or “puri-ketsu”, as they’re affectionately called in Japanese, and it seems the adorable “bum” pictures are pouring in. Yes, it’s the official puri-ketsu championships…Puri-ketsu is a combination of the Japanese words “puri-puri”, an expression which describes something juicy and plump, and “ketsu”, which is an informal way to say buttocks.
