This had better result in a 48 vs 46 jelly wrestling match.

This is getting ridiculous. They're literally grabbing anyone on the streets. Laughing

Can anyone really believe there are so many girls out there with enough talent? (No! Not that pair of "talent." Razz )

So, it's kinda like how in the Late 90's/Early 00's that Boy Bands and Girl Groups seemed to have popped up like a bad case of STD's?

*laughs* Most of the girls in AKB have a distinct lack of both those sorts of talents, alas. Randomly saw a few of them at an outdoor concert in Tokyo Dome city last year, and both their singing and the dance choreography were less worthy than that of a high school dance play. The fact that AKB is probably the biggest thing in this country at the moment is just a little depressing...

Yesterday I saw a Montana license plate that said AKB 297. A portent of things to come, perhaps?
