Should I go to the post office?

The 22nd is the Enthronement Ceremony in Japan and I have not got my invitation in the mail. Clearly the post office has messed up, right? Maybe I should just show up so as not to embarazada the new emperor.

What does one wear to an enthronement? A megalomaniac would know I bet. I’ll ask DocLor or Haakon.

  1. I wouldn’t bug the post office. When you fail to receive an invitation to an important event it’s most likely because the hosts are aware that you would totally outshine them at the event. At least that’s always been the reason I don’t get invited.

    You think a soon to be emperor would be more confident.

  3. You don’t need to worry about it.  You, as do I, live in that specific and rarified area of Japan known as NOT TOKYO, and therefore can Fujitsu Off and Die.

    Emperor Naruhodo and his main squeeze will do just fine without us.

    Naruhodo means “I see, indeed”. He is trying to make a joke on Emperor Naruhito’s name. He will beheaded soon I expect. (I am going to rat him out to get an invitation.)

    You’re still suck in that Heisi era thinking, in these modern times who says you need any clothes at all?  Take Pencilvanias advice and remember to fly the flag proudly!

    It is “Heisei”. “… fly the fag proudly!”? That doesn’t make sense.

    um, that’s “flag”

    I’m trying to upload an illustration but it keeps getting rejected.

    What illustration are you trying to inflict on us?

    Sometimes renaming and resizing fixes upload problems.

    Are these people in yellowface?

    I’ve always wondered what Japanese thought of The Mikado or Madama Butterfly.

    I have never asked. I doubt they were all that offended.

    I’m in a Gilbert & Sullivan group & have read a bit about it – I’m pretty sure, at least at the time (late 1800’s) the Japanese were quite amused by the Mikado. It is, after all, a satire of British politics and manners, not really Japanese culture. However, I’m on a G&S Facebook group and have seen discussions by current (liberal) Brits that think it is rather rude cultural appropriation!

    They allow sharp pointed objects in groups? That won’t end well.

    It’s always offense by proxy.

  13. According to the video posted above, the wife is a bit of an SJW. It’s nice to see that she still walks several paces behind her husband, thereby upholding the patriarchy. Which reminds me of that old joke about reversing the roles post WW II because of landmines.

    Well, she went to Harvard. I need not say more.
