Sweet Japan Pictures #5: Gender Relations

The relationship between men and women has been a bit odd for the past few hundred years here in Japan - at least, so I hear. And while modern ideas of equality are slowly creeping into the system (again, so I hear), there are still a few moments of hilarity to be had.

The first one I would like to share with you is quite simple really. A simple request for courtesy that I found in a bar in that crazy land of dance - floor - humping, Roppongi.

If you read this sign VERY carefully, you can find a one letter typo that makes it totally perverted.

For those of you who would prefer a more obvious type of "perverted", I am pleased to offer you these bedsheets. If I had the opportunity, I would totally buy these for every one of my male friends. For you ladies, I would be happy to track down a purple haired guy with a huge sword and a taste for "combos".


Anyway, here you go.

1) The typo is in the word "farther". It should read "further". If you want me to explain further, comment or email me.

2) Yes, I stole the bedsheet picture from the intar-web. It's still funny.

3) That box of tissues is tasteful and classy.
