Forgive O Lord my little jokes on Thee and I'll forgive Thy great big one on me.
Mameshiba where have you been all my life

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.

Sometimes I wish I had a more generalized sense of humor so that I find things like this as funny as other people. As it is, I'm only a bit weirded out. I suppose it might be one of those 'you just have to be there' moments?

The other option is that I am the warped one. Like I said in the entry, the humor is kind of twisted as am I.

Ugh, cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom today. A room that small should not get that dirty. Especially since I tend to clean it religiously every time I cook.
