Tomorrow, July 1st, is Canada Day.
*Loon calling in the distance
Last year I celebrated Kinada Day by talking about my visit to the Austraileeyer exhibit and so this year I'm going to rave about Japan!
Why? Why not? It's not just because Canada is of little interest to outsiders it's mainly because a friend sent me an email about Hōnen Matsuri with all these great pictures attached.
March 15 is the date upon which the festival of Honen Matsuri (Boner Day) is celebrated in Komaki, Japan.
This is the time of year when ordinary folks can swig on all-you-can-drink sake and release their inner Dongzilla!
Why? Did I mention Free all-you-can-drink Sake?
Plus it's an excuse for old farts to ingest Viagra like candy and celebrate fertility, renewal, a good harvest, yada yada yada, but mostly get hammered on all-you-can-drink sake and parade around with giant boners!
For one day everyone can enjoy having, sharing, worshipping, and receiving, Happiness from your their Japenis.
Do any of you remember the 80s tune Turning Japanese by the Vapors?
I'm turning Japanese
I think I'm turning Japanese
I really think so
(duh-nuh nuh-nuh nuh nuh nuh)
I'll bet that the local bands fueled by all-you-can-drink sake tweak the lyrics a bit..
I am loving my Japenis
I really think so!
(dun-nuh nuh-nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh)
