It’s a rainy, grey Saturday here, so we’re huddled up with our tea. I made black beans & eggs for breakfast– very warm comfort food and have decided now’s the time to pull together some of the goofy pics I’ve been collecting.
A particularly ripe area for fun pics are the vending machines. For lo they are ubiquitous and stocked with so much more than Coke and Coke Zero.
Signage is another tried and true source of humor. Tokyo’s English signs are generally quite readable (especially compared to the past), so you’ll have to stick to engrish.com if that’s what you’re looking for. There are still plenty of advertisements where something gets either lost or disguised in translation. This is one I saw out of the corner of my eye in a train station:
In Japanese the toilet sign says anyone can use it (i.e. handicapped accessible), but this way it’s got so much more potential!
Wanna try and guess what this adorable little kitten is telling you? “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!” Not quite. This is a warning not to apply make-up on the metro, because it will be “bothersome” to others. (… well, naturally)
And finally, a small collection of the joys that await you if you visit. (Aside from tentacled chicken of course)
