karaoke &

Just the other day I was wandering down a shopping street in Osaka when I happened upon a karaoke shop with a somewhat unusual name....

This shop was chock-full...

Oh yes, the model "Abe" prime minister was a real bargain. After a year I don't like him though, so might upgrade to the "Fukuda" model, or even save up for classic "Koizumi".

On the other hand, might just get a bike...

They're never going to be able to unload that excess inventory of former Prime Ministers.

That first one's real, pretty sure. As for Meat and Oba Sans, I somehow doubt it.

As much as some of those really made me giggle, I think the last one is what pushed me into LOL territory.

Why meat?! Why oba-sans and meat?

Friggin' incredible.

Oh, brilliant! I've been in the market for a crack-lovin' sumo wrestler, but a pot smoking one will do in a pinch.

Where do you find all these??
I live in Tokyo, always looking for these kinds of signs, but don't see them much.Maybe I have to pay more attention.
Sometimes I feel embarassed as a Japanese though...
