My wife has a manekineko collection. They are supposed to bring good fortune and wealth.

Here's the real story...



Mika and Kyoko Kano -- busty, middle-aged beauties whose main claim to fame is being famous have -- sued Miri Okada, the one-time wife of "Monkey Magic" star Masaaki Sakai, accusing her of slander for claiming on a TV show hosted by Kansai Queen Emiko Kaminuma that the saucy siblings had tried to seduce her current husband, Norio Yanaginuma.

500,000 Yen for a movement sensing "beckoning" cat?

They got ripped.

I didn't see any mention of stuffed cats, neither plush toys nor once-living ones. Maybe I'm just blind?

Still sounds kinda cool. If I was in town and didn't have anything else to do, I'd go. But then, I'm a sucker for museums. Libraries, too, and all those other nerdy cultural things.

I, for one, welcome our new robotic cat overlords.

I also work for robotic cats

So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

The caption of the pic: "Robo-cat, left, sits next to its stone counterpart in the Okayama museum."

Is it really that hard to tell which is which?

Good point. The caption should have said: "Robo-cat, the one not wearing red boxer shorts aound it's neck, sits next to its stone counterpart in the Okayama museum."

Manekineko are 'good luck cat' sculptures. ('Neko' is simply 'cat' in japanese.) A lot of japanese businesses have them near their doorways or reception areas. This museum is dedicated to those sculptures.

Crazed cat with foot fetish blamed for chewing off woman's toes


The case was discovered in the early hours of Oct. 6 when one of the elderly patients in a Saitama nursing home buzzed for help.

A home worker raced to answer the call, entering the two-person room to find an 88-year-old woman lying on the bed, her right foot a bloody mess and its toes missing. Some reports say that a cat's bloody pawprints were spotted in the room, leading to an open window. A cat immediately became the prime suspect.

Anyone else think of those episodes of Tom and Jerry where they're in a space station?

/you know the ones

What kind of country has time for this kind of thing, I ask you!!

Here in America we focus on the important cultural motifs, like the Avenue of the Giants in California (where we once stole the Bilbo Baggins sculpture - over 100lbs of poured concrete) and the world's biggest ball of twine.

Every sushi restaurant I've ever been to has these cats, doing the high-five. I wondered "WTF" until it hit me. This is a CAT in a SUSHI restaurant. I suppose if I worked in a brewery I'd be high-fiving anyone who walked in the door too. So often that if I ever left or died, they'd have a statue of me right there, hand in the air, feet a little off balance, eyes pointing in two different directions, but an overall look of "ah-yeah". Dude, if you mad it this far you will read anything.

Nah, I'd rather have X-ray vision and the strength of five gorillas.

The government has not said if the discovery of the Axis's new robot cat army will affect our decision to participate in the war.

memebot_of_doom: Crazed cat with foot fetish blamed for chewing off woman's toes


"Cats get bored really easily. There's no way it could have chewed off all five toes, even if it was close to starvation," he says. "To have chewed them off, it would have had to have chomping away for ages. Your average cat's attention span will absolutely not hold for that long."

hahahaha!
