Learn Japanese...with toilet paper?


You know that I'm interested in every kooky way possible to increase my immersion in the Japanese language, but this is a line even I will not cross: Kanji Quiz toilet paper. I am drawing a line in the sand here, people.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised about the fact that Amazon Japan sells a product like this, but the idea of people using it seriously creeps me out. Honestly, normally I would have something pithy to say here (or at least make the attempt at pithiness), but right now I have nothing. Kanji on toilet paper? What has kanji done to deserve that? Well, besides being stupidly difficult to learn and everything.

Or maybe this is simply for the hardest of the hardcore, and my zeal to learn another language just isn't as all-encompassing as I thought?

Hi, I'm a former newspaper journalist who got tired of having a front row seat to the death of print. There probably could be some interesting story there about a disenchanted reporter moving on ... more + disclosures
