Boxing Day Humor: In Japan, It's No Ordinary Sale!

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment but it seems that 2012 is no ordinary year for Japan... God knows what the people in this Department Store in Osaka were thinking when they came up with this advertising slogan.

Chicks wearing blind folds.  Fuckin' Party.  I'm in.  Why ask why?

Bunga, bunga on Dudes.

This trumps "attention all shoppers..."

not to forget the holiday shitlogó

Caga tió, tió de Nadal,
no caguis arengades, que són massa salades
caga torrons que són més bons

Shit log, log of Christmas,
don't shit herrings, which are too salty,
shit nougats (turrón) which are much better!

They named that sale in honor of my profane tendencies.

(Honey, you didn't give Tyler that picture of the Japanese sale posters I made, did you?)


And how many of you are calling Kyle out on his research?

What do you mean, "call Kyle out on his research"?.  Kyle's research has been flawless so far.  The best manifestation will be if Abe succeeds in igniting inflation.  That's one, frankly, that I don't want to see for the resulting conflagration will consume a LOT of the world's wealth. 

The hard part is pinning down a time for the debt wave to swamp the economic boat, not whether or not the wave exists.


Yea well you must have missed it the other day. Lots of anti-Kyle because of his postion on US housing. Anyway, carry on.

So the average oriental member is 5 inches and you take 20% off....

Is this the new advertising campaign to get the Japanese public to invest in JGBs?

margaris's picture

That's exactly the point.

Japanese people consume our media much more than we consume theirs (with the exception of anime, manga etc...)

They hear us use the words fuck/fucking/fucked so much, and with such an ease... japanese people probably decided that by now it's just some cool word to emphasize something...

A year or two ago, I saw a brief cultural segment on a news show based in Taipei: a reporter on the street was interviewing people about the non-vulgarity of use of the word 'fucken'.  I couldn't fuckin' believe it: not only that this was somehow a cultural news segment, and that they're neglecting that vulgarity is exactly the point, but that then they fuckin' misspelled it!

Spot on, Margaris. As a result of uninhibited language import, the rest of the world is holding up a pretty accurate mirror to the native english speakers.

"Marsha White, a woman browsing for a gift for her mother in a department store, decides on a gold thimble."

Crops up in the weirdest places.

"Brob-up today and get an extra 20% flee!"

LoneStarHog's picture

I sent this to my favorite prostitute and suggested a "Fuckin'" sale of at least 20%.  She said, "Go fuck yourself!" I don't know how to do that.

kaiserhoff's picture

In related news, why do dogs lick their own peckers....?

kaiserhoff's picture

I thought it was because Bahney Fwank isn't always there when he's needed.

Send this to Kyle Bass.  He will double down on his Jap Bond short position.  Bizarre.

Everyone will be able to buy when the discount is 100%.

After all, isn't that what Ben has done with interest rates so that the government can effectively "buy"everyone's money for nothing?
