From Japan, With Love [Jul. 9th, 2013|04:26 pm]

My friend wanted a souvenir of Tokyo, so I brought him some vegetable crisps and a cute-but-sad gift bag.


I put in a can of cantaloupe flavored chu-hi, as well.


But he challenged me to bring him something confusing and strange, something he wouldn't be able to identify, so I added a few sachets of bath salts I bought for myself.


And a bottle of placenta extract you're supposed to drink.


And some other miscellaneous goodies. Freezone is chewing gum. And from left to right: rose flavored eyedrops, sake in a juice box with a straw, glycerin enemas with extra long nozzles, and rubbers. On the box: "For sex to which it can relieve it."

Ah, I miss Japan. The mistranslations are so perfect as to almost be poetry.

"If I am here, can you go out with you?" That seems very zen to me.

Also, I think "For sex to which it can relieve it" should be on all condom containers from now on.

Well. Just so long as he doesn't interpret them as being something to eat...

...at which moment I'd hope to have a camera on hand to capture his expression.

I just saw a commercial in India for "Man force" - a woman eating strawberries, taking a bath in strawberries, surrounded by strawberries. It was for strawberry flavored condoms. At the end she says, "because anytime is a good time for strawberries."

Strawberries are the whole point.
