So young and vibrant-looking. Makes me hopeful for the future.. actually, I don't know whats more pathetic; the effeminate pose or the fact that they all might collapse if they hold it for more than 10 seconds.

Something is wrong with Kan's posture. He looks funny...

Nothing wrong with being hopeful and optimistic. Guys, sometimes I feel that you are much too jealous than the women :). Need to google to find out where this gesture originated. Want to believe that it is from the west.

Could not make up my mind whether they were rehearsing for 'Rollerball 2011', 'Mein Kampf', or the local GLBT parade...

...ridiculous!

Yeah, the hand on the hip really looks manly. NOT.

Aaah the last of Japans old-school dinosaurs. Lets hope that Japan can see its way to revitalise the country with younger, dynamic leadership that takes its hands off its hips and its heads out its arses.

DentShop, it's not so much their heads in their arses, but rather their fists ... scary pose.

"Black Power!"..."oops, I mean Party power!" Get rid of the hand on hip thing, it aint right. I wonder how many times they rehearsed this before the photo was taken.

The chap in the middle looks like he's just escaped from a crypt.

Indeed! The guy on the very left looks mummyfied too.

I think it's called the YOSH! ganbarimasu!! . they could do with employing a better Mick Jagger choreographer. Security holding back the fans must be Kumagai Gumi from Chiba. What's up next ? The Clap .

Also notice that Kan has to wear a name tag.

What are all these old age pensioners doing in suits up on a stage? Is this some type of nursing-home exercise?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Old men shake their fists to stop nothing; cutesy girls wear police uniforms to stop crime, the homeless sleep under a bridge to stop the rain and the trains all run on time. Nothing changes on New Years Day.

"Who wants pudding with their mash potatoes?" "We dooooooo!"

or
