Turning Japan-freeze

japanese-frozen-fish-rinkA Japanese theme park created its own version of “Frozen,” but instead of cutesy animated characters, this event features dead sea creatures.

A Japanese theme park which froze 5,000 sea creatures into the floor of an ice rink was forced to close the attraction on Sunday after a public backlash.

Fish, crabs and other shellfish were embedded in the ice as part of a special winter attraction, called “Freezing Port,” at Japan’s Space World theme park. The park advertised it as a “world first” and posted images of the fish on its official Facebook site with captions including “I am d… d… drowning, s … s… suffocating.”

Space World manager Toshimi Takeda told CNN the park would unfreeze the skate rink to remove the fish, hold an “appropriate religious service” and then reuse them as fertilizer.

Of course, “reuse them as fertilizer” may be translated into “ship them to a Benihana franchise.

Stop Playing With Your Nude

Japan’s first naked restaurant is about to open its doors – among other things – but before you make a reservation and drop your reservations, you’ll need to bone up on their stiff requirements.

Japan’s first “naked restaurant“ will open its doors in late July and it’s not the thought of dining in the nude with strangers that’s off-putting. The Amrita has some fairly offensive rules for entry that make it pretty clear they’re only welcoming a certain type of guest.

On their website, the restaurant lists restrictions on entry, including weight, age and even body ink. Adult diners over the age of 60 won’t be welcome per the upper age limit, and neither will people who are more than 15 kg — or approximately 33 pounds — over the average weight for a person of their height. Oh, and no tattoos will be allowed either.

Sorry, Lena Dunham, but you’re fat, droopy ass is just as welcome in Japan as it is in the States.

As for the appeal of the restaurant, we’re not quite sure. Besides the prospect of being turned away for your height and age, the restaurant will require everyone who enters to wear disposable underwear that they will provide.

Sadly, at my age, all my underwear is disposable; as is my pants, since I usually go commando.
