This was on my Facebook feed this morning: http://justsomething.co/23-craziest-japanese-inventions-you-never-knew-existed/. G happened to be nearby, and after I perused the link, I decided to see what he thought about the inventions. I wish I could remember who to credit with the idea. I'd read someone else's child's reaction to Pop culture somewhere.

4. That's funny. You can do this *pantomimes unrolling most of a roll of toilet paper*. For your nose, like this. *pantomimes blowing nose* And then you can use it for this *unroll, unroll, unroll, unroll, butt wipe, dissolution into giggles and snorts*
I am reminded of this photo, hanging in our bathroom:
6. What is that baby wearing?...Oh, it cleans the floor? That's funny. And he goes like this *sniper crawls*.
8. Those are for ear drops. No, eye drops. They go in that thing and into your eyes.
11. Why is she putting her head in an ink pad?
14. That's a banana. The minions love bananas on Minion Rush!
Note: We blew past 17. I am not ready to hear what he may say.
21. Um, what is that? Why she wearing that? Wait, the noodle can't get on her now! Now they won't be in her hair.
23. Square pumpkins! We have been watching Spookly a lot lately. I want a square pumpkin!...Wait, it's a watermelon?
