When A Gentle Threat Just Isn't Enough

The latest rage in Japan, a country notorious for its legions of tawdry transit takers, is "Anti-Groping Appli" from games manufacturer Takahashi.  The program flashes increasingly hostile messages on a young woman's cell phone like, "Did you just grope me?" or "Groping is a crime!"

But here at Poverty Barn, we say:  When it comes to gratuitous groping, you just can't get too tough, and we humbly suggest upping the ante!

(On a personal note, I'd like to thank Catherine for letting me grab her blog for a post...or two...or three.)

Mags... Yeah what kind of a wuss am I? I stayed away from blogging for a whole 10 days. But I got so many offers to guest post, that I decided to accept them all. Now you can just consider me a "journeyman blogger"--drifting here...drifting there...

Now we need some anti-GOoPer program here in the States.

Glad you're posting on the internets, but I'll refrain from asking you to post at my place. The standards would be raised, and then I'd actually have to write good posts. Fuck that. :)

Hey Randal, what are you saying about my posts? Jokes!

Posted by: catherine | Oct 25, 2007 10:00:33 AM

Of course not! The good blogs have asked Kvatch to contribute. The rest of us wouldn't ask. :) Well, maybe Dan Riehl asked, but no one is saying a word about it. Appearances, and all.

I'd like a cell phone message to flash that says "Shove your neo-con bullsh*t in my face again and draw back a stump with liberal leanings!"
