Only in Japan: Humping Dog and Peeing Dog Toys

Posted by | Only In Japan, Random, WTF?! | No Comments

The last time I went to Japan, I walked into a store and was surprised to see a display of “humping” dog-USB toys. Looks like they’ve now taken it a step further… Up for preorder at the Japan Trend Shop is the Peeing Dog, which is a robotic toy dog designed to replicate the behavior of a dog with a full bladder. After winding it up, it walks, stops, raises its hind leg, takes a pee, and then repeats from the beginning until it’s fuly unwound. The Peeind Dog will be released on July 5, but can be preordered for only $34.00, plus $18.00 shipping & handling.

McDonalds France released a gay-themed advertisement that is causing a stir around the globe. The advertisement uses the slogan “Come As You Are” which is, according to a McDonald’s spokesperson, meant to “recognize the diversity of McDonald’s customers in France.” Some groups are questioning the rationale behind the ad, while others are applauding it.

This makes no sense at all… His mother really needs to get him off of these cigarettes. Here’s the description of the video:

The footage shows two-year-old Ardi Rizal reclining with a cigarette in his mouth. He waves it around, and draws back deeply on the cigarette. Ardi’s parents claim that the child is addicted to nicotine. His mother Diana 26, told Britain’s Sun newspaper she felt powerless to deny the child. “He’s totally addicted,” she said. “If he doesn’t get his cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.” Ardi Rizal smoked his first cigarette when he was 18 months old and now smokes 40 cigarettes a day. The overweight toddler is deft at blowing smoke rings, but is so unfit he cannot play with other children.

Odd News: Chikan Subway Gropers Beware!

So, Japan (a 143,619 sq mile island) has a huge population of over 125+ million citizens and therefore the country is extremely overcrowded. This overcrowding, apparently, is also ideal for perverts who want to grope women. In Japan, a man who commits such an act is called a chikan, and they tend to perform such acts on the subway trains. I’ve been to Japan twice, and I’ve never noticed anything like it. Apparently, there are message boards where these chikans decide on a time and a place to “mass grope” women. At any rate, Japan Railways has tried to circumvent this problem by making “female only” cars and installing video cameras. Also, Japan is actually considered one of the safest countries. Is this “groping” not a safety concern? WTF!?
