    Thank you for enriching the English language, from now on when ever things are about to go pear shaped, they are in fact "Half way up a chickins Bon Jovi". Just made my day, week almost!

    I bought some kind of sponge while visiting Japan a couple of years ago, in the area of the fish market. I think it was a natural sea sponge or something. It said you could scrub your body or your pots and pans. Well I know it can scrap the iron out of cast iron, not sure I want that thing close to my skin though. O_o

    Those Japanese wash towels are the best! I grew up using a Salux and bought one of those "manly" washcloths in blue, it's wonderful. I left it at a friend's, but I have yet a 3rd kind of Japanese washcloth, I love 'em scratchy and scrubby!

    The menu at that pub is deliberately funny. There are some "lost in translations" but most of it was meant to be funny like above the "Cinnamon Water of Terror" it says "Danger" and "Waiting for the challenge of those courageous". Look closely at the menu and you'll get it. Think about it, Japanese people know what the word Danger means - it hasn't been mistranslated. Besides, there is a picture of a skull and bones next to it.

    It really is bizarre, and just because a place advertises in English does not mean they speak English or there is an English menu. Here are some wonderful examples I found of this phenomenon:
    While exploring Tokyo a man walked past me with a bright yellow T Shirt which said "Hey Boss! Give me the holiday!" There was something so off kilter about it that I found hilarious.
    On the train a man got on that looked like he was wearing a T Shirt with the Supreme logo on it, except in that iconic bold and italic font it said 'Fuck Bitch.' There were so many kids standing near by...
    The most astonishing thing I saw was coming out of Chofu station. Now this was towards the end of my stay, and I had used this station so many times. I was riding the escalator out when I saw something I hadn't noticed yet, and I literally did the full on Scooby Doo double take. In Tokyo the strip clubs are really common, usually recognisable by being plastered with posters of innocent looking girls. Except this particular strip club was boldly advertising a "FUCK STAGE." I didn't have time to go in.

    I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but I saw someone in America wearing a shirt that said this, "ファッく人類" (F*Humanity). When I questioned the person, they apparently had no idea what it said and couldn't read any Japanese. It's best not to wear a shirt if you don't know what it says.

    For the "woman-friendly" menu thing, I think they're probably trying to point out that the veggies don't include bean sprouts, which are thought to increase estrogen levels and increase risk for breast cancer. Just came back from Japan myself but didn't notice that on any menus while there, although it's a generally accepted idea in Asia.
