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.

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.

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!

SUKI (tm), the famous Japanese religion, The New World Religion (tm), is known as the 'motherfucking religion'.  Apparently 'motherfucking' is something not done adequately in Japan, hence the shrinking population.  But the RELIGION has taken the whole idea a bit far, wouldn't ya say?

Few realize the orgin of the word.

It comes from the old Gypsy language. 

Foche: It means "to sheath the knife" whose connotations indicated moving in a peaceful direction as to avoid bloodshed, as in "agree to put the knives back in their safe place."

To sheath the penis in a vagina seems a reasonable adaptation but it's rather sad that it's lost the original peaceful intent, though clearly to the Japanese it has no intent at all.

It's kind of old news, is it not?  The sale took place in January 2012, almost a year ago then.  So no points for being up-to-date.  Othwer than that, it is still funny, I have to admit that.
