Actually, to understand the Japanese sense of humour, you need to understand the language. It has more "manners comedy" than just about any other culture.

Besides, have you seen Japanese TV? You have to have a sense of humour to watch it. Otherwise you would claw your own eyes out!

LOL. Maybe they were surrendering.

They do have a wicked sense of humor though.

I remember watching a Japanese game show while stationed in Okinawa that I'll never forget.

There were three contestants trying for a fairly large amount of Yen. The MC would escort a small child on stage (usually between the ages of seven and ten) and then tell them that a loved one had just died (parents, grandparents, pet. It varied). Each contenstant would try to guess how long it would take before the poor kid would break down and cry. The one closest to the correct time won.

Move over reality TV......

That is wicked.. leave a kid with post traumatic stress. wow. but the japanese didnt surrender on Peleliu. had to kill them all. was really murder. Macaurthur wanted this island against advice (Bull Halsey?)to make the retaking of Philippines easier. Completely unecessary as it turned out. From what i read. B-25s and i think A20s did the bombing.
