Japan's nuclear power plants need to poo
It is way too soon to joke about the three-disasters-rolled-into-one happening in Japan right now. Luckily, though, for those of us with an almost unbearable urge for shocking tactlessness, Japan is making the jokes for us with a public service video for children explaining via one of the most convoluted metaphors ever that, basically, Nuclear Boy has a bad stomach ache and he needs to defecate, but doctors need to prevent him from doing so because "it would surely ruin everyone's day if he pooped."
Thanks also to Will Breathes for passing this along, and Nuclear Boy, we can relate: We, too, are notorious for our stinky poo.
