On November 25th, we must remember to give thanks for the Internet.

(Key quote: If you eat us hiding from your mother, amount of your homework will be...trippled!)

Tsriif?
not first

Sorry, I didn't proof read that post. That should have been "Tsrif" not "Tsriif."

Not Tsrif!

Soy Sauce Warrior?!

The Soy Sauce Warrior would be a good name for a performance artist, perhaps.

I am the foolish monster! I make will homework for the trippled bad time. When make Banana and Shrimp, to eat is monster frozen yummy. Soy Sauce to defeat will is requirings skill and patience of the most kind. I see you suppry I speak Engrish so werr. Where is you head quartah? You rike VCR, yes GI Joe?
I now make go to eating some ice cream of the taste squid type.
Bonzai!!

ps. The Bonzai Banana and Shrimp Ninjas would be a totally stupid name for any kind of band.

By the way, there's about 10 native Japanese people in my office. I would ask them to translate this cartoon into something that makes some kind of sense, but because of linguistic barriers, I don't speak Japanglish and usually can't understand them anyway.

Which Iron Chef is responsible for this foolishness?

*"Falsh"es the blog*

Yes, Fed. But it would sell millions if it were a set of action figures.

BONZAI BANANA AND SHRIMP NINJAS
Napoleon (blue shrimp)

Nascar (orange shrimp)

Fat Albert (jumbo shrimp)

Alan Alda (banana)

I was a fabulous famous artist tragically damaged by outpouring of hate mail when I produced an original (and fabulous) work for the Livermore Public Library. My career is ruined. I am hiding out in Florida with a large supply of soy sauce, bottled water, and a really big generator.

we've seen this one before... its in our productivity enhancers, no?

I took some frozen shrimp from the freezer and a banana from the bunch sitting on the counter and tried to recreate this cartoon. Thankfully, I failed. Maybe I should use baby carrots and turkey bacon instead?
I'm going to hate myself but I must go see it again!

I sure hope I'm not going to offend anyone with this, but the hell was that?!

It seems that everytime I see kind of movie from Japan, it's always strange. Of course, I'm a white guy who lives in America, so that probably explains a lot.

I really need to consider the concept of proofreading my posts. The wor "some" should preceed the word "kind" in my previous post.

DOH!

SPeaking of Japanese, has anyone noticed that on some of the interviews on Fox during the playoffs, the audio isn't always synchronized....it's like watching a Japanese movie....or Ashlee Simpson on SNL.

Sly - During the playoffs here in ATL we have a "tradition" of turning down the sound on the TV and listening to the local announcers on the radio. (The network announcers always sound like they have never seen baseball before and are making up stuff to say)

The radio delay is shorter than the TV delay and we become accustomed to the radio calling balls and strikes before the ball reaches the plate on TV.

Pogo, we used to do that when Jack Buck was alive and announcing the games. But with Mike Shannon doing the honors now...it's not the same. He says stuff like "He has a 5-run home run to his credit", and "First he goes like this and then he goes like that."

Well, at least he doesn't say "And now Curt Schilling has two balls on him." (Apologies to George Carlin and his "Seven Words" routine.)

And... What do you do with an elephant with 3 balls? Walk him and pitch to the rhino.

During Game 1 of the Cards/Dodgers series, Joe Buck mentioned that one of the Dodgers is known for hitting grand slams...but he said "He's known for his grand salami"....just as the guy adjusted himself on national TV. Somewhere, Jack winced.

RANDOM TRUE JACK BUCK STORY

Back in the late '70's, I worked at the same radio station as Jack. Another personality was on vacation, and Jack filled in for him. He had a very laid back, easy going style on the air. I was in the studio writing some stuff on the program log as a song was ending. Something kinda jazzy. THe mic opened and I stayed very quiet, waiting for the mic to go off. Jack just sat there, staring out of the window, quietly humming along as the song ended. He was looking at a giant billboard that said TUMS. The song ended and he kept humming and tapping a pencil. Then he said, "TUMS spelled backwards is SMUT." Then cued a commercial...but kept the mic open 'cause I was dying laughing and trying to keep it in and not be heard ove the air. When I got through the door, I looked back and he just grinned wickedly at me, very pleased with himself.

I miss him.

Foolish, foolish, foolish!

That's a wonderful tune.

Hi Polly!

wow... I can't believe I lived 30 years and never heard that song until today.. are the Kikkoman's people suing? (just curious)

Jack Buck would also have noticed that 'SUBARU' backwards is 'U R A BUS'

What the H-E-Double-Hockeysticks was THAT?!!

You know, I never saw it coming - the banana hooking up with the shrimp, not that there is anything wrong with it.

Sly, great Jack Buck story!

Great Jack Buck story!Who's Jack Buck?

I'm sorry, but I have to keep returning to this commercial. I have never laughed so hard in my life! And it's still funny. Yes, I will give thanks for the 'net' on Nov. 25th.

ahhh, kikkoman is back.

Shoyu, Show me
Kikkoman Kikkoman
Shoyu, Show me
KIKKOMAAAAN!

=)
