Japanese Paranormal Activity: In Search Of Kappa

Here in the US we have Chupacabra.  In Japan they’ve got Kappa, which, according to various sources, dwell in lakes and rivers and have shell-covered, shiny-skinned bodies with either beaked or ape-like faces (either?!).

That’s all necessary background, mind you, for the following clip from the same Japanese hidden camera show that brought you, a few weeks back, that hi-larious faux sniper attack prank.  Watch below as actress-model Yukina Kinoshita has the living crap scared out of her by a village of cucumber-offering Kappa believers.

Politically Corrected: What’s small, cuddly, and likelier than a Build-A-Bear to initiate a workers’ revolt?  The Communist Cuddle Doll.  Castro looks cooler with that cigar, but I’ve got my eyes on Lenin—he looks like my Grandfather!  And, yes, “The Boss,” should not ever be confused with Kim Jong-Il, but if the Dear Leader can bring pizza to Pyongyang and stop that missile testing, maybe he’ll make next year’s collection?

Here’s a creepy image of a 3-D anime girl if she were human. I have no other information on how this photo came to be. Just go with it.

Etsy seller lovedtodeath:

This is a OOAK piece of anthropomorphic taxidermy art. It is made with genuine taxidermy squirrel parts that have been professionally preserved. She is in a custom made wooden box with beautifully gold and red flocked Victorian decorated walls. She is clutching her golden heart (genuine preserved squirrel heart in 24K gold gilding), “Her Hearts Best Treasure”. Her dress is trimmed in fur and she is wearing a ruby heart pendant on a gold chain necklace. Atop her head is her rhinestone crown. On the wall hangs a framed painting of her beloved family. The floor is rich black velvet and the ceiling is painted gold with black Victorian accents.

 
Squirrel Queen Victoria can be yours for $495.00.

This brings back memories of National Lampoon’s Bored Of The Rings!

Editors from the progressive magazine The Nation are pulling together a book to be released the same day as Sarah Palin?
