A university professor calling for the end of the JET program in the Daily Yomiuri newspaper

Longer version of the same article (pdf)

Once I got over my seething rage (the Yomiuri version, which I read first, only has the inflammatory bits), I realized that this guy makes several good points. Everyone kind of knows that the system has plenty of problems. Food for thought.



So, I asked class 3-1 if they want to sing "Imagine" by John Lennon for their appreciation party thingy for the teachers, but it turns out they're already planning to sing Hare Hare Yukai, aka the ending theme of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. The student body president (who can't sing to save his life) is going to be Kyon. And, yes, they are going to do the dance.

How can "Imagine" possibly compete against "Hare Hare Yukai?" Gaijin smash FAIL.

This thread on the animesuki.com forums contains some hilarious DN parodies. I especially like the swimming parodies and the Suzumiya Haruhi dance routine.

[Edit] A kind passerby also pointed out a link to Raito the Christmas Elf, guaranteed to take off ten years of your life even without any kind of eyeball trade.
