Aibento has a great post full of bento boxes. The one above is only one of the many adorable designs on the site. You have to go take a look at the whole collection to appriciate the awesomeness magnitude of these dishes.
Damn the Japanese and their ability to do the most bizarre things on earth and end up looking all the more innocent and sweet for it. I mean, it’s mean to be riding on these little pigs who are not built to carry this type of weight, but when you see the girl laughing at the end, it’s hard to care. Thank you BoingBoing.
This game looks brilliant. It’s by the creators of Katamari Damacy. You have to use your Wii remotes to pose like the hole in front of you. Personally, I like the big polar bear body builder. I think BoingBoing’s Offworld is right in trying to push for this game to come to America. Spread the word.
Great video, thanks YesButNoButYes.
If you’re sick of cutesie bento boxes or if you just love horror flicks, you’ll dig this Ichi the Killer bento box on Flickr. Sakurako Kitsa made the face with mustard and turkey.
This is from the very memorable part of the movie where he inhales deeply on his cigarette and blows the smoke out the slits in his cheeks.
Who wants to drink horse placenta? Oh me me me!!! Ok, not really, at all. But apparently there are some people in Japan who do. Supposedly that black one pictured is the more potent version.
Now why someone would want to drink this. Aside from it’s delightful flavor (sure) it has an amazing list of health benefits, or so it claims. Some of its effects include skin whitening, headache and canker sore cures, lighter menstrual cramps, decreased sensitivity to cold, and an increase in hunger.
Obviously this is Japanese, as Americans want things to reduce their hunger and want to darken their skin. But I’m still disturbed that anyone in their right mind would want to eat a placenta, let alone drink it like a soda.Oh, and the price makes it even better. It’s supposed to be a daily treatment regimen, but the orange flavor costs $50 per bottle and the black is $100 a bottle.
Hand me a cucumber soda any day, but a placenta drink, I think I’ll pass. Surprisingly though, I may be alone, they’re already sold out of the black flavor.
These extra wide contact lenses are the ulimate in weird sexiness. I love them!
