Random Weekend Picture 21
I was taking a walk around my neighborhood and perusing the drink machines, as I always do. I have found that some of the most entertaining slogans and product names tend to crop up on drinks. This time, it wasn't the name so much as the ingredients list that caught me by surprise. I didn't know that catnip was something humans ate. Either that, or I didn't know that Yakult made drinks for cats. ;-) The Wikipedia entry for catnip mentions that it is a good insect repellent for roaches and mosquitoes. Maybe this is a way to drive away the usual Tokyo summer roach infestations from the inside.
Incidentally, "Lemorea" sounds like some sort of fantasy-land where animated citrus fruit frolic or like some sort of nasty tongue fungus disease to me. I'm not sure which is scarier.
