Dear Japan,

Please take a break from Japanning every once in a while.

Much respect,

Wtf were they thinking.  Presenting that as an example of Japanese "culture"?

Or were they just trying to out-clown Trump?

One was singing, the other was listening for as long as his tiny attention span allowed.

But it's a follow-up. Follow-up boobies.

Better the e-begging at the end of the article than some "slide over" fullscreen ad for a Chevy truck.

I've set up a direct debit (not in response to this particular ebeg, a different one). I love the Guardian and I want it to carry on being awesome. I only buy the paper on a saturday, and not even always then, so I wanted to contribute.

It's a Trump trip overseas. I was expecting some celestial orbs.

It's reassuring to see concrete evidence that world leaders don't take Trump any more seriously than I do - they mostly just troll and goof on him, like Abe is doing.
Clueless fat sack of shiat obviously has only a limited perception of what's going on around him.

"going viral" has kinda hit peak saturation.  Plus, with so much actual news in the news these days, it's hard to keep up.  This is why I've set up RSS feed filters and alerts for "inane foreign shiat", to keep me abreast ahead of "inane domestic shiat", i.e. regular ol' News

Holy shiat, Trump actually smiled in the pic in TFA. And he wasn't screwing anyone over while he was doing it!

The only two people I have seen wearing that mustache are flamboyantly gay. John Waters and this guy. To be fare, I've never heard of this guy before, so I don't really know if he's flamboyantly gay, but if I had to make a guess.....

Are there any other examples of this mustache in the wild?
 
2017-11-07 07:19:11 AM  
Interesting thing about this is that I had a percussionist friend who used apple/pineapple as a rhythmic device to count odd time signatures, e.g. 5/4 would be "apple-pineapple" or 7/8 would be "pineapple-apple-apple" (with apple counting two beats and pineapple counting three).

This was hugely helpful to my lame-ass rock & roll moron self who could only play in 3/4 or 4/4 time without getting lost.

I wonder if that contributed to the song lyrics.

The more I think about this, the more I laugh. They took our president golfing, let him feed fish, showed him some live action youtube clips, and then praised him on twitter. This was Lil Donny's perfect day.

I don't know what you were negotiating Abe, but bravo. THAT was some "Art of the Deal" level shiat.

This is so unbelievably f**king embarrassing. But I guess they kind of owe us for Hiroshima and so forth.
F**k a guy over, and sooner or later he'll find a way to cuck and humiliate you.

I think they were doing ninja-level trolling. They chose this guy to sing for the POTUS. They didn't choose world-class classical performers, or a sexy J-Pop group. They chose a YouTube Kids star.

So if I... I mean, did the... in the video they... wtf?

How is it that I am just now hearing about this delightful new thing that will surely become a permanent musical sensation for years to come? I mean pens, apples and pineapples? It's an obvious hit. #1 with a bullet!
