PEOPLE OF JAPAN 20 - “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.
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 19 - “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).
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 16 - “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.
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 14 - “TABLE 23”
Yes, you can still smoke cigarettes in pretty much any restaurant in Japan. This is great for news for the following three groups of people…
2. Cigarette Manufacturers
Unfortunately, this is bad news for everyone else.
What is interesting, at least to me, is that people in Japan live way longer on average that people in America. Some say it’s the raw fish, but I say it’s a combination of miso soup and midnight robot dance parties.
PLACES OF JAPAN 01 - “SMOKES LIKE TEEN SPIRIT”
Actually, maybe it’s steam. Either way it always looks nice on camera.
I took this photo as I was on a lunchtime quest to find Chicken Teriyaki, hands down my favorite meal in America. For anyone who thinks that Chicken Teriyaki would be on every menu in Japan, as I did, think again. During our week in Japan I only found Chicken Teriyaki once! Pizza was everywhere, but not Chicken Teriyaki. Outrage I say!
