Oh, the FailHinomaru. Looks like Japan’s crashed again.
Yeah, all that traffic from anime fans and wanna-be ninja put a lot of stress on a culture. It’s sad, because there are people who want to interact with Japan for decent purposes too, like maybe studying the way Shinto developed into a national force, or maybe the way an island nation grew to be a local superpower, just as England once dominated Europe. There’s philosophy, art, cuisine, architecture, technology, even a system of law built over different basic principles. Japan’s a fascinating nation that has plenty to offer in thousands of different fields.
But what do they get? ”@nihon-koku lol more pocky plz” ”@nippon-san loved what you did on adult swim, can we get more of that?” “hey @japan you’re the bomb LULZ GET IT???” Under that kind of constant stupidity, is it any wonder things might fall apart now and then? Is it any wonder they need an easy symbol letting you know they’ll be right back after a short break from all the stress?
And anyway, last week anti-whaling activists prevented them from their annual Antarctic hunt. They’ve got to put SOMETHING up in place of the failwhale that got away.
Wear this shirt: if you’re going to Fukushima to help with the clean-up. An image like this could speak volumes!
Don’t wear this shirt: when you go watch Kobe Bryant play. The joke’s too subtle and nobody’s gonna get it.
This shirt tells the world: “If you want to hang with me, you’d better have a working knowledge of national flags.”
We call this color: Slate Colored Fabric/Yet Also, A Sky For Cranes/Makes You Think, Don’t It?
