Street Buttle Team

I've seen 'fack you' several times but this one is new to me. Maybe it's some kind of street fight using one's butt. Just imagine, it's funny.

I came across a UFO picture while I was organizing my photo archive. It's an Adamski-type UFO. I'm so glad I didn't get abducted. Maybe UFO abduction happens only in the US.

Here are some pictures of ennichi special treats.

Thin rice wafer w/ sauce (so-su) or paste on it. Traditional so-su senbei comes with mayo, okonomiyaki-sauce, or plum paste (red one).
