Like usual, Dox arrives late to the party.
So I happened upon these things called Mameshiba
while watching various shows online and at first I was smitten by how damn cute they were. Seriously, I was rooting for commercials because I wanted the cute. Then I figured, anything that cute had to hit it off with anime fandom so I Wiki-ed them and found their official site and what they are actually supposed to be.
Apparently they are "not quite a bean and not quite a dog but rather a hybrid of both. They appear out of nowhere to offer random bits of trivia whether you asked for it or not." So I watched some of the little shorts (seriously 30 seconds each) and giggled like a loon as the reason for that phrasing became clear. The trivia is often slightly warped (and sometimes factually shaky) and often comes when the person would least want to hear warped trivia. How warped, you ask. Well today I learned that a koala's appendix is 2 meters long...from a jellybean...that was about to be eaten.
So anyone who wants to giggle, or just squeak at the cute, check out the Mameshiba
website. If you don't want to hear the trivia, just avoid the videos section.
