Makes me Happy

I've never had a fondness for pro wrestling. When I was a kid I'd have to leave if it was on. Only reruns of Hee Haw could get me out of the room faster. But the other day I caught something on TV that made me rethink my snobby ways.

And that was an eye opening show that contained this lovely fellow here, Tea Fighting Kateking. Notice the tea leaf on his forehead with the characters for tea written on it.



He was with his buddy, Orange Fighter Jutaro.




They were going around to local elementary schools and making sure the children ate their mikan oranges and drank their green tea. Oh, and at one point their good pal Fish Figher Hiraking showed up.

He often struck this pose.


Here they are all together.


(I'm a little worried about Orange Fighter. It looks like he's about to heave.)

So, when the three of them (and their buddies) aren't helping promote Numazu City's signature products, tea, mikan oranges and dried fish respectively, they are beating the living crap out of their neighbors in Fujimiya City.

On that team we have the always dazzling El Trout the Rainbow. I couldn't find a real picture of him anywhere so you'll have to settle for this one.



It makes me happy.

Oh my gosh.. you have no idea what I think what Mr. Oranges mouth looks like.. right? And the one below... or my mind is in the gutter.. hahaha

Pat said...

These guys are really wrestlers? They look a little scrawny.

Girl Japan said it. My mind is right there in the gutter too: first thought I had was "Whoa, is that what I think it is?" So glad it wasn't, and thank you, Girl Japan for having the nerve to share that.

I hate pro wrestling, but I'm all for kids eating their fruit and vegetables. And fish too, come to think of it. Sadly, it would take more than these guys to get my 14-year-old to eat an orange, but who knows? They're not me -- they might be worth a go!

It's hilarious! Poor orange dude. He should travel with bucket!

Kappa no He said...

Oh my. I did sorta think that about the Orange dude. Totally missed the fish guy. Is this suddenly NSFW? Ha!

Mary, there was a great show on the other day where these two twins (comedians) dressed up as Alien Vegetable Men and visited a home when the parents were away to get the two little boys to eat their veggies. You would have gotten a kick out of it. I wonder if I can find it on Youtube.

Pat, yeah, I guess it's just regular old Joe's who walk in and say...hey, what this place needs is a Green Tea Fighter and they make their own costumes or have local residents design them.

Woman in the Window, actually, somewhere on line I saw a picture of the Green Tea guy in a similar heave-like position. I wonder if they weren't running a marathon that day or something.

hahah Mary! I seriously did a double take! Gosh this is SO funny!

Kappa no He said...

That's so sweet, Gina. Thank you, I'm on my way to see what it looks like. Weee!

And Girl Japan, you just know some guys had a couple of beers and sat down to design those. Makes you wonder what the female pro wrestling costumes look like...

OMG Terrie, where do you find these people? I need to get out of the office and house more!

and HeeHaw...oh that brings back memories...
