"We disqualified them as a lesson, to teach them the importance of competing in accordance with the rules."

Beating the shiat out of each other is a good idea, but damnit "DON'T TRIM YOUR EYEBROWS"..

Back-to-back eh?
2002-07-13 04:31:34 PM  
Wow, a repeat so soon. I'm impressed.
2002-07-13 04:31:42 PM  
You mean they weren't forced to perform SEPPUKU??!!! Pussies.

"'We have banned thin eyebrows because they are intimidating to opponents and cause displeasure,' Tatsuo Kakizaki, an tournament organiser, was quoted as saying."

Well, just because YOU have a hair fetish...

Hooray for lousy translations!
2002-07-13 04:33:11 PM  
At least they repeated with a better source.
2002-07-13 04:34:22 PM

2002-07-13 04:34:51 PM

i dont understand? how are thin eyebrows intimidating? If anything, big bushy SCARY eye brows are intimidating. *shudder*
2002-07-13 04:37:21 PM  
I wish that thing had a picture. I want to know how thin eyebrows can be so intimidating.
2002-07-13 04:38:41 PM  
All your eyebrows are belong to us.

2002-07-13 04:46:27 PM  
am semi new here, so I dont know how it works, but who decides what gets posted and what doesnt?

It seems like theres no intelligence behind it? Is it done by a macro or something?
2002-07-13 04:46:30 PM  
Can we go for the Threepeat?
2002-07-13 04:47:51 PM  
im sure it happens a lot more often on totalfark
2002-07-13 04:48:16 PM

2002-07-13 04:50:03 PM

"The Judo is the place enormous importance creates one in the manner and the thin eyebrow make the person not quick picture sports, " Tatsuo Kakizaki, 58, leadership federation's Judo distinction. The " federation rule bans the eyebrow several years which picks. This is the child which teaches one-way. We have not changed our rule intention or so many."

Its like deja vu all over again

What the pluck is going on here!
2002-07-13 04:52:59 PM  
you go now! no trouble!

Rbuzby, Fark fullfils the "Million Monkeys with a Million Keyboards" hypothesis. Still waiting on that Pulitzer...
2002-07-13 04:57:42 PM  
Those eyebrows...

I take it back. Thin eyebrows can be scary.

Why do these articles make me think of Tae Kwon Leep ?

Boot to the head.
2002-07-13 05:21:36 PM  
didnt i just see this? oh wait must be the next one
2002-07-13 05:38:41 PM  
and the mods wonder why we complain about repeats...
2002-07-13 06:01:59 PM  
I thought maybe it was banned (per the OTHER headline) because there ain't many more uncomfortable things than plucking the hair out of your face. Maybe sticking bamboo skewers under your nails or childbirth, but it's right up there.
2002-07-13 06:18:20 PM  
wasn't it just a couple of days ago that someone was asking if there had ever been a back-to-back repeat? i sense a fix with the judges here :P
2002-07-13 06:41:50 PM  
Also, plucking nullifies the Eyebrow Throw, my signature move.
2002-07-13 06:50:37 PM  
I'd like to see a pic of those frightening, offending eyebrows. I wonder what else is banned? Bad breath? "Garlic-breath banned by Judo judges because when breathed on opponent, opponent's eyebrows may fall out, causing too-thin eyebrows, which are also banned."
2002-07-13 06:50:39 PM  
I think Reuters must have sourced their story from Mainichi news!

Who would have ever thought THEIR stories were real... ;)
2002-07-13 06:56:24 PM  
There is something about this article that is vaguely familiar to me. Where have I heard about this?
2002-07-13 07:19:48 PM  
A girl I used to date in high school, one time got carried away plucking. She ended up with very very little eyebrows left. It was kind of intimidating , but luckily, she still had nice legs. Now Tammy Faye right there, that is scary!
2002-07-13 07:31:29 PM  
who cares if theres a repeat, christ, you people aren't paying for the service, just deal with it and quit biatching. I honestly don't see whats the big deal with there being a repeat, I just look past it and keep reading. Its really not that hard to skip 1 line.
2002-07-13 07:32:51 PM  
"The Mainichi learned that federation officials called together before their bouts over a dozen pupils with thin eyebrows. When six --- a boy and five girls -- admitted to either plucking or shaving their eyebrows."

That's what you get for being honest, dumbasses!
2002-07-13 07:51:34 PM  
I repeat:

All your eyebrows are belong to us.

.....damn ROFL
2002-07-13 07:54:55 PM  
It's a shame there is no pics on this one :(
2002-07-13 07:58:17 PM  
Ok, that's it! I'm banning my kidney stones because they're disturbing, painful and cause fear. Also, I am banning the fatass Rottweilers across the street because they bark all night and the owner is a nipplehead, so he gets banned too!

I played judo for 15 years. American Judo isn't this crazy. Then again, American has never won an olympic gold medal in judo so we can use any edge we can get in international competition. Perhaps some eyebrow plucking is in order...
