Why does Japan shine?
Here's a hint: it's not the natural lighting. Sometimes, there are Good Japan Days. And sometimes, Chuocide doesn't seem like such a bad idea. In honor of all those Bad Japan Days, I spent a train ride the other day taking the lyrics to They Might Be Giants' "Why Does the Sun Shine?" and reworked them. If you're one of those weirdos who doesn't enjoy the musical stylings of TMBG, you can listen to WDTSS here. Please note, this is not going to be pretty: Japan is a mass of consumerism and trash, A gigantic money-sucking furnace, Where cash is turned into useless junk, At a rate of millions of yen. Yo ho it's hot, To-kyo is not, A place to spend the summer, But I love my job, oh so much, Correcting those who say "more funner."
