    No captions.
    What are you, posting sober in rehab?

    hehehe “fresh mans”

    You’ve written about how every corp., business, establishment, entity, and org. has a mascot, but do you know how that flows with tradition? As it seems so many Japanese things do (or pretends to).

    Does that school uniform place actually sell those old-school uniforms. Old-school-school uniforms?

    Good to know where to go if I have a sick moose in Japan.
    The one above it, of the angry head on legs, worries me.

    They use that karaoke one in the windows of a, guess what? karaoke bar among the dozens that seem to be in Sydney.

    There have even been situations where rival karaoke bar people will go to other karaoke bars and fight… not often, but it’s happened – I wonder if they fight to bad 80’s videos and follow the moves on the screen?

    I don’t really wonder that, I thought it might be a fun joke.

    I was wrong.

    @a7th: I don’T know if they sell ’em: their business model seems to revolve around being closed always.

    @Anok Panda: I don’t know. My interview with Matt Alt and Hiroko Yoda – who know more than me – they talk about Japanese mascot-mania’s relationship/origin in SHinto.

    What does a flying fish has to do with dentistry?
    Where is the animal hospital? I am very interested in the mosaic behind it!

    the winking bunny with the 5 oclock shadow was especially creepy and baffling.
