What a riot! I read it through once, then, a second time, with a shrill Japanese accent. Too funny!

Ahh, an understanding of Japanese culture might help here

*BloggerMan to the RESCUE!!!*

The japanese, for whatever reason, are as a nation infatuated with plushies[known to us americans as stuffed animals]. A popular anime can make more money off it's merchandising of plushies of the characters than by selling the show. Scary stuff, and it's spreading to Otaku[anime fans, primarily US fans], so watchout! You might see a HUGE Snoopy in a car sooner than you think :)

I did look up japan sanrio and san-x just to make sure it wasn't something too scary and got a little glimpse into the strange, soft and furry cute animal worship....weird and scary!
