Obachan boxing match

From the collective brilliance of the Takeshi Gundan troop, here is a very funny skit “M1 Grand Prix Monomane Gyanu Boxing”  featuring some trash talking “oba-chan” (silly old Japanese aunties/grandmother)”  (including Kunihiro Matsumura 松村邦洋) in the boxing ring in a fight that gets way out of control!  Hilarious!

Japanese zoo animal escape drills

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rzOkpYtIEx8/TYRlxZF5JRI/AAAAAAAAGwc/68VURK7GAI4/s1600/page-12.jpg

Tokyo’s famous Ueno Zoo恩賜上野動物園 (in Taito, Tokyo) is located in Ueno Park, a large and popular urban park that also has museums, a small amusement park and other attractions. Every year one of the more comical sights in Tokyo is when Ueno Zoo performs an escaped animal drill.  A zoo worker dresses up in an animal costume and mimicks the behavior of the animal out of his enclosure while other zoo workers try to capture him.

It’s not just Ueno Zoo but other zoo’s in Tokyo  that hold similar drills practicing the capturing of  a tiger, rhino, monkey, zebra, rhinoceros and other animals that might make a break for freedom!

Sumo wrestlers dressed up as Cheerleaders 1960s

An amazingly rare and funny photo from the 1960s showing professional sumo wrestlers attending a local Undokai (School Athletic Meet, or “Field day”) to entertain the kids.  Instead of wearing their traditional Mawashi sumo belts 廻し, the sumo wrestlers have dressed up as cheerleaders including bras and majorette skirts!!!  Who says sumo is not entertaining?
