maybe they should borrow some of those fans with timers from korea

Knowing Japan, there's more demand for used diapers than for fresh ones.

Don't they also have a baby shortage?

I read the first page, and was all like, "What is this, a Japanese Star Wars ripoff?", but then clicked a couple of more pages.  Then I clicked no more.  Split half & half between laughing and "that's really friggin' gross".

Thanks for that.  I think... uh... Yeah.

Lost Thought 00: Don't they also have a baby shortage?


Aren't baby diapers and old person diapers made out of the same thing?

Did they check their vending machines?

I'd love to pay only 8% sales tax instead of the 19% I haveto pay here...

Nice. Not as good as the village where the women shat out babies and gave birth to shiat, but this one is much more pleasant.

So a sales tax hike is looming?

So Japan goes on a diaper hoarding spree?

Makes sense after watching Kill la Kill, where man battles against alien clothing (I'm not stone/drunk enough to come up with this by myself.) Go and watch it, won't make any sense but interesting watching.

\in Mericaland, we don't rush hoard unless it's either going to be banned by the gubermint, or a hurricane is coming

Well yeah, now that it's radioactive.

Wait, a country with a major problem of declining birthrates decides to tax diapers by 10%?

What's engrish for Brilliant?

It's not a specific tax on diapers.  It's an overall sales tax increase.

Missed that part.

Still, they always seem to be bemoaning the lack of babies. Why not exempt baby products?

/ok let's get back to jokes
Diaper shortage? Did they check the vending machines? Sure they may be used but...

/I am sure that joke has been made already

I'm not too aware of any (if there are any) programs for tax relief for families in Japan, there very well could be.  Apparently there isn't enough people eligible for any relief considering this is a consumer driven shortage brought about by massive buying in the hopes of avoiding too much cost.  At the same time this could be an orchestrated buying by assholes hoping to gouge people for necessary baby products.  Probably a little from column A and a little from column B.

They'll have to do what China does.  What does China do?  You don't want to know.  Just know what they do, they do everywhere.  On the street.  On the bus.  In a restaurant.

They still have a birth rate?  Isn't it still supposed to be worse than Spain & Italy?

Send lawyers, guns, and money. Problem solved.

Do cotton cloths and soap not exist in Japan?

Stop farking over the planet with your disposable plastic garbage.
