Nifty > Japanese Novelty Culture

man-arm-pillow.jpgThe Japanese arm pillow will be getting a lot of attention now that Drudge has linked to the story.

Snopes has more on Japanese see-through skirts (false) and Japanese breast scarves (true, but not popular).

For all things Japanese, visit Mainichi, a Japanese newspaper in English. The tabloidy WaiWai section (not necessarily safe for work) is pretty out there. I have no idea how much of it is real and how much is completely made up.

And don't miss this Washington Post feature, Who Was General Tso and Why are We Eating His Chicken? Question left unanswered: did General Tso and Colonel Sanders ever face each other in battle? If so, was Captain D involved?

I hate to nitpick, but...well, actually, I like to nitpick. Anyway, "one of these things is not like the others."

It's a funny joke, though.

Captain D's has chicken! But, yeah, I just wanted to work in another fast food joke.

I'm talking about putting an article about Chinese cuisine in a post titled "Japanese Novelty Culture."

Oops, you're right.

No biggie; I told ya it was a nitpick! And it's still a funny joke.
