There are No Exits

Post by clay » Tue 08.05.2008 4:37 am

I took this photo a few years ago, but riding the train back from Osaka this morning (to get Megumi-chan's American passport), I saw it again. EDIT: This was on the back of the seat in front of me on the JR Thunderbird train (Hokuriku line).

Just read the English:

Is there at least a spoon?

I'm just imagining the next Japanese Horror Movie
サンダーバード21「There are no Exits」

btw, as an aside, did you ever find it weird how the train going to fukui is called the サンダーバード and the train going away from fukui is called the 雷鳥?
