I was reading some article yesterday about this cute little monkey that was born in a Japanese zoo. Don't ask me which one...I wasn't paying THAT much attention! It made me realize that I wanted a monkey to call my very own...and then I remembered that taking care of the man AND the babe is quite similar to having a monkey in the house. Alas...no little orange monkey for me, I suppose! Unless, of course, I overfeed the babe only orange solid foods...then she'd turn orange and it would be even more similar to the little monkey. It has happened, people, it is true!
So anyways, then I decided to do a search for other
Really?? I mean, I didn't know there was a market for something like a clear goldfish. When I was kid we only orange...maybe a black or white one...and IF you got to the pet store on their delivery day then you MIGHT be lucky enough to find a multicolored one - but that was a HUGE if! So then I really got on a roll and decided to search specifically for Japanese inventions.
Did you know that since the refrigerators in Japan are so small that researchers found a way to force watermelons to grow in the shape of a square?!?! It is true!! That way the fruit an easily fit on the door and not take up so much space in the main part of the fridge. GENIUS if you ask me!! Makes me want watermelon...and summer :(
The final invention I have for you today is the "hayfever hat"...don't we all wish we owned one of these around allergy season?? I don't suffer from seasonal allergies, but I know people who do...and they use a TON of tissues! What could be better than a roll of toilet paper on your head at all times?! Talk about an awkward interview!!
**NOTICE: I do not have anything against the Japanese or the country of Japan...in fact, I have traveled to Japan 4 times to visit family on my mom's side - she is Japanese.
