    I don’t know exactly what it is for – but I want it.

    Kitsch is always good.

    it’s called a Tanuki. It’s a japanese raccoon-dog, they show up in Japanese folklore a lot, Miyazaki even made a film earlier in his career about them. BTW, hi MCS. I’ve been a long time loiterer, finally got around to registering.

    hi

    It looks like taxidermist art to me. Pretty cool.

    Reminds me of the crack fox from The Mighty Boosh.

    thelastmadox: you beat me to it. My google-fu (and computer) is slow this morning.

    Tanuki, japanese badger trickster guy, sort of like Coyote in Native American lore.

    Supposedly has a giant scrotum and uses it to play tricks on travelers!

    T. Robbins did a book with it as a character.

    Shame it’s not grey. Metal Gear Solid joke would have been ripe.

    @thelastmadrox:
    welcome!

    @mld:
    how does one go about using their large scrotum to play tricks on people?

    Assuming that you have a large scrotum. which I do not.

    So this is the sort of thing that dances around in that video where a man in a similar animal costume and waves his GIANT balls at a little girl, with red riding hood costume? Someone must know what I am talking about and can post a link, if anyone wants 😛

    @tiki god:
    We are your scrotums.

    Give us your orders Scroticus.

    It’s a poor stuffed tanuki. They use their balls to meteor into people from the air, among other things. Also shapeshifters.

    BADASS!

    Tiki,
    I am not worthy of your attentions/mockery..

    but yes, possessing a large scrotum is an opportunity for many possible pranks. According to Japanese folklore anyway.

    As for the Japanese, as it has been oft-stated here, either we have nuked them far too much, or not nearly enough.

    @tiki god: Haven’t you seen Waiting?
