Hello, Japan? It’s the West calling. First off, still waiting on the Hoverboards. Secondly, WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH YOUR DORITOS PACKAGING?
Taitsukun or “Mr. Bodysuit” in English, is a pair of trademarked Japanese cartoon characters. These two guys, brimming over with love, seem to express themselves better in body language than in words. The character in yellow tights is Pierre, who’s fickle and lacks patience and the one in orange is Jonathan, who is meticulous and never loses his cool.
So.. basically the Anime versions of these guys are pushing Doritos in Japan, though I’ve yet to see Mitchell kick Cameron in the nuts (coming soon?)
The website for the movie Space Jam has been sitting on the web since 1996, without any updates. Take a trip back to a time when professional athletes played basketball with cartoon characters, and there was a lot less garbage cluttering up the web (including this site.)
You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!
You: yeah totally
Stranger: i know man i agree
You: way it goez
You: are you australian
You: you smell australian
Stranger: like vegemite and dingoes?
You: yeah like that
Stranger: well, thank you
You: why are you using this rather than chatroulette?
Stranger: because i’m enormously obese.
Stranger: or maybe because i don’t like getting a face full of dicks.
You: i have 2 noses
Stranger: that’s a shame, no wonder you can smell me through the interwebs
You: So how bout that Tumblr site
Stranger: i’m not that into it
You: I keep trying to get into it. Right now I’m basically just spamming all of its users.
Stranger: everyone says it’s cool but there aren’t enough words for me
You: Are you thinking of Twitter? Because you can write billions of words on Tumblr
Stranger: no, on tumblr people usually just repost pictures other people posted
You: Oh yeah. THOSE people.
Stranger: almost everyone
You: I will get rid of those people, so you can read as many words as you want. Ok?
Stranger: we should get married.
You: You just want a visa, don’t you
Stranger: i might.
Stranger: i’ve been trying to get out of this third world country australia
Stranger: did you know we have no freedom
You: Yeah I saw that Nat Geo special
You: I read about how babies are trained to ride kangaroos in case australia goes to war
Stranger: well, to tell a national secret
Stranger: the kangaroos seem to be going rogue
Stranger: we’ve lost more babies than ever
You: “The kangaroo ate your baby” now?
You: That’s a dingo pr stunt
Stranger: they’re working together!
Stranger: they’re just like the dementors
You: can you schedule a baby pickup from the kangaroos?
Stranger: what do you want a baby for?
You: i don’t want a baby, i just want to know that if something “happens” i can hire a kangaroo to take care of it
Stranger: ah, of course sir, most discreet.
Stranger: you would have to bring the baby to australia and leave in on a porch.,
Stranger: smothered in vegemite, if possible.
You: that’s a long flight
Stranger: you think it’s okay to drink tea that’s been sitting out since eleven am?
You: it’s iced tea now
Stranger: there’s milk in it
You: probably not then
Stranger: well but it’s evaporated milk
Stranger: from a can
You: that’s never ok to drink
Stranger: good enough for pumpkin pie, good enough for me
Stranger: it tastes better in tea than regular milk, you should try it
You: i have, i’m not into it. i need more words.
You: ok gotta head out, later!
Stranger: byeeeeeeeeee <3333
