I'd feel bad for the parents if a 20+ year old shut in wins.

That last piece with the EVA girls reminds me of Eastbound & Down's first season, and Will Ferrell's angry line at an uncooperative Danny McBride: "I want to see Ashley Schaeffer written on your tit."

They also have a lower percentage of obese people.

All the other junk food in a Japanese 7-11 must do nothing. Slurpees are the sole reason why America is so obese. kk.

Not really? He was trying to imply that slurpees and the lower obesity rates in japan are related when that's sort of ridiculous.

I wondered if those 25 people planned/budgeted for this or they already had $16,657 lying around to ready be used for anime merchandise.

I'm not suggesting something so silly. They're not directly related, of course, but it is true that Japan has a considerably lower percentage of obesity and that Slurpees are ridiculously unhealthy, so I was trying to make a joke. whysoserious.gif

Man does that Eva figure look awesome. I've always wanted one, and a giant one would totally kick ass. Too bad i don't live in Japan or have that much cash lying around. It's a damn shame 7-11s here don't do these kinds of promotions for stuff like this.

Your joke wasn't funny. It made no sense. Hence why no one laughed.

Also, as a professional working in the medical and science industry in Japan, I can assure you that obesity rates are on the rise here, and it obviously has nothing to do with Slurpees.
