Flossing: You’re Doing It Wrong

Impressionistic painting of a red river flowing–deeply–between two, rolling, hills

Well, maybe not wrong so much as so, so right:

You guys remember the King of the Fighters games, right? One of the main characters is a particularly bouncy female fighter named Mai Shiranui. I say particularly bouncy, because she happens to have sprites that make her appear, well, bouncy.

Never before had I considered buying one of these figures, until I saw this one. For some reason, she’s giving herself a wedgie! Must be some sort of ancient Chinese secret.

Note: Mai is JAPANESE, not Chinese, so it might be some ancient ninja secret to get your, um, cheeks extra perky.

Other than that, I woudn’t be caught dead with one of these on my desk or shelf (closet/under bed, though…hmm) and believe it or not, faint of heart, this is pretty tame by Japanese figure-maker standards. (You would not believe some of the twisted sh*t that comes out of that country…no, wait…you probably would, but I’m not even going to link to some of it because it’s so bloody off-putting.1)

No, really, I’m not.

    Hm. Looks uncomfortable.

      Yes, which makes one wonder why women do it so willingly, so often. (Mind you, this isn’t anything akin to a complaint.)

    Fucking hell, there’s some creepy shit on that website. I think I’m going to have to wipe my history – I’m not on my computer.

    “Japanese men must have a deep longing to see women prostrated on the ground with their asses aimed towards heaven. That would be the only explanation for half the figures that we’ve been seeing lately”

    Don’t really have a problem with the first sentence, it’s wanting a pornographic plastic figure on your mantlepiece (I presume that’s where they go) that’s a bit worrying.

      Yeah, I’ve known people that have things like this scattered about their domiciles, and I’ve never actually asked them if they thought that, maybe, this sort of thing–in full view–is somehow inappropriate outside of, maybe, a teenage males bedroom. (The only thing I own that’s even remotely akin to someething like this is the chick from Sengoku Blade, but that’s less because she’s a buxom babe and more because it’s pretty much the only merch you can buy for the game–and, even then, she’s kept discretely, in her box, off in a corner where only fools dare tread.)

      And I meant it when I said some of these things are way past the point of displaying *anywhere*, and I don’t think Tomopop even covers those things…thank God.

    I’ve somehow ended up reading past updates on the site for the last 20 minutes. I’ll be honest with you, I’ve bookmarked it.

    Never thought I’d find myslf looking at pictures of plastic lamas before.
