Uh oh.

*adds Japan to Australia on Do NOT Go There list*

Anybody else get itchy after reading this?

Japan is bracing to be destroyed Godzilla-style.

The cute girls attending the press conference were the first to be quickly and thoroughly checked for ticks.

What lunatick thought it was a good idea to bring a live one to a press conference?

They shouldn't worry...the tick hitched a ride on the back of a plague rat...

I hate it when this happens.

All I can say is "Don't Fear the Reaper."

Somehow I see squirrels here.....

...or perhaps just some mice. I guess they're rather distant cousins.

Did anyone click on either of the links for the helicopeter footage?
