PEOPLE OF JAPAN 33 - “GRANDMAS INVENTING STUFF IN GARAGES”

Okay, so they might not actually be grandmas, and they may not actually be inventing stuff, but I’m pretty sure that they are in a garage.

That being said, if by chance they are inventing something, I hope it’s an ice cube that never melts, cause I like my coffee cold but not watered down. And if they’re not working on un-meltable ice cubes then I hope they’re at least working on underwear with pockets, for those day when I forget my pants but still need someplace to put my wallet.

FED UP

The look on his face says it all… someone just showed him my blog. 

I’m not sure why, but of all my chef photos this one is my personal favorite. Maybe it’s the composition, or maybe it’s because this one reveals the chef’s sidekick.

LOOK CLOSELY

Look closely… she’s hiding something. Could it be a mogwai? I hope so.

For any Gremlins enthusiasts out there, here’s a question that has always bothered me…

I know that the most important rule for “keeping” a mogwai is “Don’t ever feed him after midnight”. My question is, at what point after midnight can you feed a mogwai? I assume there must be a specific time, is it noon? It’s very confusing because midnight is the beginning of the day so everything that follows would technically be considered “after midnight”? Do you see what I’m saying.

I’m only asking because in my dream world I’d like to eat pancakes for breakfast with my mogwai. Unfortunately I prefer my pancakes at around 8am on Sundays. Would this be possible, or would I have to eat pancakes for dinner? I’d obviously make the sacrifice to prevent a “gremlin situation” from happening, but damn, pancakes are sooooo good in the morning.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

THE HUMAN HIGHLIGHTER

Without the bright blue earmuffs he’d be just another regular guy who happens to wear bright clothes. But with the bright blue earmuffs he ups his game and transforms into “The Human Highlighter”. Watch out because if he thinks you’re important he might brighten your day!!! What an awesome super hero.

Note to self: Make “Human Highlighter” comic book, make lots of money, buy big screen tv, order some pizza, watch Cupcake Wars with Vicki, eat pizza, watch Animal Hoarders with Vicki, order more pizza.

ADORABLE HAT LADIES ON TROLLEY

After I took this picture I told Vicki that she needed to get a cute little hat. She politely replied, “that’s not necessary because I can steal your cozy winter cap whenever I want”.

LITTLE CURIOUS MAN

He’s not looking for lobsters, he’s looking for a Mogwai.

Unfortunately if he does find a Mogwai it’s obviously going to be wet. If you don’t know why that’s a very bad thing than I hope for your sake that your dad never gives you a Mogwai.

THERE’S A TURTLE ON THE TABLE

Literally every single person at the Kochi fish market looked like a character from the most incredible film ever. Part of me thinks it wasn’t a market at all but rather some sort of movie set and I just never picked up on it.

If I hired a “science guy” to create a device called an “interesting meter” I’m pretty sure the good folks of Kochi would blow up the machine. Comparatively, most folks near where I live in Brooklyn (such as myself) wouldn’t even make the needle move (assuming the “interesting meter” operates via an analog needle as opposed to a more modern digital readout).

Finally, what the hell am I talking about and what is wrong with me? I have a hot wife somewhere in this apartment and I’m sitting at a computer writing about “interesting meters” that probably would never really work seeing as “interestingness” is a rather objective quality. I just can’t see a robot quantifying something like that.

So now I’m stuck with two options…

1. I can go watch Cupcake Wars with my hot wife (speaking of interesting, check out Cupcake Wars on the Food Network, it’s surprisingly awesome)

or

2. Look for a “Science Guy” on Craigslist

Hmmm….

JAPANESE UNCLE BUCK?

A few days back I posted another photo of this amazing man along with a quiz question asking which 80’s comedic actor he resembled. I had an overwhelming two participants which I’m pretty sure means that my blog briefly went viral. Anyway, congratulations to John Carleton and Drew Shannon, you both answered correctly, the correct answer was indeed John Candy! As you two read this imagine me throwing some popcorn in the air and Vicki yelling “Yay”, because unfortunately that’s the only prize you guys will be getting. I was going to give the winner a nice gift certificate to Applebee’s but since you guys tied I decided to just throw it in the trash. 

Anyway, everyone should follow John and Drew now as they are two cool guys who are not afraid to answer the tough questions.

CIGARETTES AND BOOTS

How incredible is this guy’s outfit?

Pop Quiz: When Vicki and I laid eyes on this man we both instantly decided that he was Japan’s version of a famous 80’s comedic actor. Name that actor!!!

Hint: The actor was Canadian and he was once in a film with Steve Martin that Vicki and I consider to be hands down the best “buddy film” of all time (it actually might be my favorite movie ever).

STAR CROSSED SMOKERS

Here we have yet another pair of star crossed smokers who probably will never meet. So close, yet so far away, it makes me sad.

In my head I’d like to see these two get married and open up a grown-up version of Chuck E. Cheese’s.
