How do you save a typhoon ravaged island in Japan from financial ruin and boost its tourism? Now loons, it’s Japan, so you need to be thinking outside the box. Give up? OK, you turn it into a life-size version of the Game of Life board game, that’s how. The island will have a life size roulette wheel and a bus that will shuttle tourists around. The inspiration for this idea came from Taknanori Iwamoto, a member of Yoron’s Chamber of Commerce, who was stuck without power during last years typhoon season and ended up having to play endless hours of games with his family.
Psst Don’t know Game of Life? Think “The Amazing Race”.
Poor little critter got the beejezus scared out of him by an enormous welly boot . Silly little thing!!!
The sorry tale of a drunk Japanese businessman at the Tottenham Court Road tube station.
Hey Loons, for a limited time only Burger King Japan is offering a Pumpkin Burger on their menu. Hmm, sounds scrumptious. Also includes bacon, lettuce, a beef patty and a creamy mixed nut sauce …. just so they can neutralise the health benefits. I’m guessing McDonalds will probably respond with say a McBroccoli Burger?
Feet up Japan , three piranhas have been caught in a river in Atsugi. The fishes were about 4 inches long. Hmm, you sure they just aren’t mutant koi?
Food theme inspired smart phone covers are selling like hot cakes in Japan. Go figure.
Um yeah, about those Fukushima nuclear reactors, seems one of them is heating up again. Despite the temperature rising above safety standards officials are saying there is no immediate danger. Oh and like they are to be believed! Quick, hand us some more water and boric acid solution and then run!!!
Attention loons in Hiroshima, be on the look out for a prison escapee. He should be easy to spot, he is wearing only white undies. This is Japan’s first jailbreak in more than 20 years and they are really pissed. Li Guolin stripped off in the prison yard before using builders scaffolding to scale the 5m perimeter fence. A security guard said Li “fell on his rear and turned over. Then he ran off at a steady trot.” Li is serving 23 years for attempted murder. Sheez, you’d be unlucky to get half of that for murder in Oz. Authorities have allocated 800 police officers to find the dude in the white undies. Good luck with that.
Hmm, yeah about that Japanese baby formula, if your baby starts glowing in the dark it’s probably because it contains radioactive caesium. Don’t worry none, the Meiji baby formula has been recalled, all 400,000 cans of it. Egads, the Meiji milk factory is guess where? Yes indeedy, 200 miles from our favorite leaking nuclear reactor, Fukushima. Sheez, lucky for Japan their rice isn’t….ah wait a minute…never mind, that’s been banned from export. Phew!
Psst It’s only the a safety precaution as the amount detected is under the totally freak out level!!!
