Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: Target China

If blackboard musings are any indication of what the SHAFT team finds interesting, then China must be their current whipping boy. It's not wholly undeserved, especially when absurd things like meat buns, cardboard, and toothpaste are involved. With the Mattel recall involving miniature magnets and lead paint, China is like the laughingstock of the export nations. Well, with markets way down on account of stupidity and greed (aren't they always?), someone needs to play the village idiot for comedic relief.

On a totally unrelated note, I am a stats whore. I have yet to reach that transcendental state where it matters not if anyone reads this. I figure, I might as well be talking to a blank wall, right? If the blank wall talks back, then you've arrived at Enlightenment. Or you're crazy.

I've got to agree with the village idiot statement, China deserves every single bit of it. Ever considered switching to full RSS feeds, btw? Might get more readers that way. or not.
