We think 'freaky japan' might be more accurate...
Maybe having the distinction of being the only country to have actually been nuked has permanently warped their perception, but things clearly ain't all right in the Land of the Rising Sun. The Quirky Japan Site highlights many of the things that would make us round-eyes go 'hmmmm.' We were particularly fond of the 'Love Hotel' that had an enormous stuffed Hello Kitty on the wall over the bed—and you thought decorating with antlers was bad. Make sure you get to the section on Japanese TV. It seems that The Simpson's 30 Minutes Over Tokyo episode wasn't too far from reality.
Now you know who wears the pants in the family
Let the 2008 race begin! Here's a site plugging Hillary for prez in an indirect fashion, by plugging Bill for First Lady. Not a bad idea, actually. I bet if Bill were to pledge to spend the four ( or eight ) years of a Hillary presidency dressed in pink Jackie O togs ( with pillbox hat, of course ) that even Bill O'Reilly would be tempted to vote for her. Make sure you click your way over to the CaféPress store where you can buy T-shirts emblazoned with 'Karl Rove Killed my Kittens,' and 'Jesus says bomb the hell out of 'em.'
This site is simply charm-in
Your one-stop shop for novelty toilet paper. We weren't able to decide between the oh-so-butch camo or the oh-so-adorable duckies. The tissue is two-ply to reduce the risk of, ummm, accidents and the inks are soy-based so all you crunchy types can feel less guilty about it. Holy crap!
The Sounds of Silence
Speaking of holy crap... Christian mimes! And they are everywhere! Check it out. Not one. Not two. But three freakin' Christian mime sites—and we didn't even dig very deeply into the Google search. There are probably hundreds of these groups out there all just waiting to do their 'trapped in a box—IN HELL' and 'walking against the Rapture' routines. Remember, beating a mime with a baguette is legal in 23 states and encouraged in 26 more. ( As a mime-free zone, Alaska has no stance on mime beating. )
