Beer Made with Coffee from an Elephant’s Butt!

unko2

Hey all you beer lovers out there! I want to tell you about the best beer I’ve ever had. It’s a coffee stout made with elephant droppings!

Now, I know what you must be thinking; “Coffee and beer, ewww!” But really, this beer is insanely delicious.

It’s called Un, Kono Kuro which is a pun on the Japanese word for crap (unko). The name has two meanings phonetically: “Yeah, This Is Black” or “Sh!t Black.” In English it’d be like saying “Blackish, It Is” (say that really fast a few times).

This Is Really Sh#t Beer!

1 Beer

When asked to pick your poison what do you choose? In a recent survey, people in Japan were asked to select their favorite alcoholic beverage. The results, as we’ll see after the break, were quite surprising.

 

(The following survey was conducted by Japanese website Shunkan News, and was taken by a total of 20,048 people. Respondents who answered, “I don’t drink alcohol” or those who were underage have been omitted from the results.)

Japan’s favorite drinks:

Beer: 34.9%

Wine: 12.6%

Nihonshu (Japanese Rice Wine): 10.5%

Shochu: 17.7%

Plum Liquor: 13.6%

Makgeolli (Korean Rice Wine): 0.9%

Whiskey/High Ball: 4.3%

Other Alcohol: 5.5%

Why one Man Refuses to Sit: Standing up to Pee “A Matter of Honor”

pee sitting down

No matter how much you love someone, once you start living with them minor irritations are bound to come to the surface. The object of your affections – that perfect specimen of a human being whose every movement used to be cute, sexy or endearing in some way – suddenly becomes just another person with flaws of their own. Perhaps they slurp their coffee too loudly. Maybe they have a habit of leaving hair in the plug-hole or not changing the toilet roll when the old one is finished. These minor issues are the kind of thing that we only come to notice after the initial “honeymoon” dating period when we were always dressed to impress and only have to keep our bad habits in check for the duration of a single evening at a time.

In a recent story about marital relations, Japanese website News Post Seven heard from both relationships experts and a number of married women who were distinctly irked by their husbands’ bad habits. While issues such as of a general lack of help with the housework or cooking frequently cropped up as the cause of arguments and unhappiness, one of the most common complaints made was of husbands making as mess while peeing. Told to take a seat while draining his spuds, however, one Japanese man was seemingly morally offended by the mere suggestion, stating that to pee standing up is “a matter of honour”.

Call for pants on Michaelangelo’s David

Pants /PA

The residents of a Japanese town have asked for a replica of Michelangelo’s David to be fitted with underpants.

The 16ft statue was erected in a park in Okuizumo where it towered over people visiting nearby sports facilities.

But it is also close to a children’s play area, which prompted residents to object to the Renaissance statue’s nudity.

“It’s frightening the children and worrying the adults with its nakedness,” said an official in the small mountainside town.

“Several people have asked us to cover it up with underpants.”

The statue, along with a replica of the ‘topless’ Venus de Milo, was presented to the town by a local businessman.

Local officials said they hoped that residents would in time come to appreciate the value of the sculptures, reports the Yomiuri Shimbun.

Town official Yoji Morinaga said: “They are statues of unclothed humans, and such pieces of art work are very rare in our area.

“It’s the first time we have had anything like this in our town. Perhaps people were perplexed.”

Something Dark And Bittersweet Is Brewing — Chocolate Beer!

8109-1-20111220194431

Produced by the Sankt Gallen Brewery based in Kanagawa Prefecture, this so-called “chocolate beer” surprisingly isn’t made from real chocolate or cacao/cocoa. It’s made mainly from a combination of high temperature roasted chocolate malt and regular roasted base malt, which gives it a distinct rich flavor, not to mention the dark chocolaty color, all quite different from the typical light, golden-colored beer that we’re accustomed to. And in case you’re wondering, many women in Japan go crazy buying chocolates (some of them quite expensive too — Pierre Hermé, Jean-Paul Hévin and Pierre Marcolini , to name just a few of the chocolate brands popular in Japan) for Valentine’s Day, hence the chocolate beer promotion at this time of year.

This year’s chocolate beer line-up was released on January 10th, and our lucky reporter had the chance to sample some of the dark, bittersweet drink and even received some tips from the folks at Sankt Gallen on how to make the most of your chocolate beer experience.

Treat Your Loved One’s Penis to Something Special this Christmas with Hand-Delivered Tenga

c7ccb806c13da3312d738b9ca3e44d7d

Tenga is a Japanese brand of stylish male sex toys made by a company of the same name. As sleek as Tenga products look, however, most people aren’t going to line their collection up on their bookshelf. Even if it’s common sense that practically everyone masturbates, it’s still embarrassing to have other people stumble upon evidence of your alone time.

And that’s the beauty of Tenga Express, a limited-time service where you can have a cute Japanese university girl hand-deliver a Tenaga masturbation aid. What better way to show someone you care than by sending a complete stranger to their home to implicitly say, “Hey, I know what you do at home, and I support that.”

Man Leaves Box of Fish at Japanese Orphanage

is this Arthur Furrowfield’s doing…..

PC160008_20111216170537

Another tale of anonymous Japanese winter philanthropy, this time from Toyama prefecture.

At around 2:30 pm on December 8, a female staff member at an orphanage in Takaoka city noticed a man pulling up in a white vehicle and placing three large boxes, two styrofoam and one cardboard, at the base of a telephone pole near the entrance. The man, who seemed to be in his 30s, beckoned the staff member over with his hand and, without saying anything, left the boxes and drove off.

In the cardboard box were five daikon, or Japanese radishes. In the styrofoam boxes were two large, plump yellowtail, accompanied by a letter that read: “The men of the ocean have braved billowing waves, putting their lives on the line for these kan-buri (winter yellowtail).” The letter was signed: “Yours truly  A Man Who Loves the Ocean”.

At first, vegetables and fish may seem like a rather strange combination to leave outside an orphanage, but the man had actually gifted the children with a luxurious winter feast: winter yellowtail are a major seasonal delicacy that normally sell for anywhere between 30-40,000 yen ($350-$480) a fish.
