A Little Humor

This post has absolutely nothing to do with worship or the arts. It's just for fun. I came across a video series called "The Japanese Tradition" by the Japanese comedy duo "The Ramens." And I almost fell out of my chair laughing. It's really understated humor, so not everyone will get it, but for those that do, it will brighten your day. The first two links are understandable by anyone, even if you're not in Japan, and from there they get a little harder to understand without some personal experience. Enjoy!

Kosai - Dating (27:10) - This is the best one by far. It's hilarious, but it's 27 minutes long, and requires a bit of Japanese cultural knowledge. It's split into 4 parts.
