Why blow your own trumpet when you can get someone else to blow it for you?

Or something. Our Man was honoured to discover that he has made the pages of the No. 1 Shimbun. That's only the blinking newsletter for the hallowed Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan, the FCCJ to those in the know, or who can't figure where the apostrophe is supposed to go.

I'm honoured, really, for this accurate write-up of this here blog.

Our Man's yearly honorary membership has expired and he would so love to throw tomatoes (literal ones not tedious overripe figurative ones) at the Osaka Outlier Hashimoto who has picked the FCCJ to defend/prostrate himself on the ground over his indefensible comments on sex-slaves and such on Monday May 27th. Anyone got any spare tickets for the Hashimoto gig? And a tomato or two?

Word for today: Honoured.

Hey, I didn't know about this until just now. What a great piece of publicity for you, hoss. Well done.

Yeah. And I didn't even have to do anything. It just appeared.
