    A bit related to my post about "things I'll never get used to in Japan." I'm sure all of you have heard of rising wasabi (the onion of Japan), with such famous articles as:

    https://www.therisingwasabi.com/emperor-naruhito-launches-twitter-account/

    https://www.therisingwasabi.com/pol...after-installation-of-massive-speaker-on-van/

    https://www.therisingwasabi.com/china-calls-japan-to-say-it-wants-its-kanji-back/

    If you were to write an article for them, what would the title be. Here are some of my pitches:

    *Top 10 times a salary man wearing a mask coughed on me

    *How to politely decline your boss's invitation to get plastered on a Thursday night

    *2020's hottest spots in Tokyo to wait in line

    I think Rising Wasabi should make a post about the information all the governments are now giving to their people. Pretty much it has two parts:

    1) Even if you are young you should be really careful; stay home, do nothing, go nowhere. Even young people can die for it!
    2) We will need to get 60-80% of our people infected so we can get herd immunity.

    I would add:

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, from his bed, accuses the Japanese PM for his "putting things under the rug" strategy and comments "truth always prevails". He also urges Abe to cancel the Olympics as saying "Japan's dishonesty doesn't qualify hosting the games". He also announces that London is ready to host the Olympic games in 2021 and that will be "the main strategy to slow the epidemic in Britain."

    "Japanese government cancels truth" so true. I enjoy this change of tone though; I'm mad at the lack of what is being done and I think a satirical platform is a good way to highlight the incompetency. I know a lot of gaijin who are burying their heads in the sand, refusing to keep up with the news and just living their lives like normal. If their precious rising wasabi starts talking about it then they have to open their eyes sooner or later.

    Yes, but they could do it in a satirical way like here: https://www.therisingwasabi.com/jap...-stop-exponential-spike-in-coronavirus-cases/
    But I get your point. Reading serious articles from TRW is like a slap in the face. You expect a twist until the end of the article but there is none. It could work as a wake-up call for some.

    By the way, I haven’t seen any April fools joke this year.
    It looks like nobody was in the mood.

    Well at least now nobody can tell us to “go back home if you don’t like Japan” unless we are okay traveling the ocean on a makeshift boat

    Well, I am pretty sure that the people who usually say things like that are not so easily swayed that they wouldn't consider a discarded bicycle tyre as a good travelling device.
