You can buy individual teeth or a full set with gums from this tooth vendor in Djemaa El-Fna in Marrakech, Morocco. If you read my previous post on Marrakech’s main square, you’ll know that this guy is only one of a countless number of interesting characters (remember her?) who hang out here.
After the intentionally funny “smoking manners” poster I put up last week, I decided to go with an unintentionally funny—and deeply philosophical—one this week. I’ll post a few more of these in the future, but don’t worry, I won’t go through all 70 or so in the long-running ad campaign by Japan Tobacco.
This funny sign is part of a brilliant ad campaign by Japan Tobacco to encourage “smoking manners.” You’ll see these things all over the place in Japan.
Most people are aware of Japan‘s high-tech toilets with their numerous (and let’s face it, mostly unnecessary) functions, but not everyone knows that most toilets in Japan come with a faucet and a little sink above the water tank.

Alright, so they’re not actually selling cow piss, but that’s what it sounds like when someone offers you some Calpis. Since they’re also responsible for Pocari Sweat, I have to believe the Japanese are the undisputed champions of unfortunate drink names. This particular vending machine is located in the Bentencho area of Shinjuku in Tokyo, […]
This Buddhist monk was sitting outside a temple in Vientiane, Laos and checking himself out in his little mirror for a good half hour. After a few minor adjustments, he seemed happy with what he saw. Who can blame him?
A bull having a quick roadside snack in the small town of Canacona in southern Goa, India. In a country where cows are revered and rarely turned into delicious foods, there’s not much incentive for people to take care of them (not the males anyway). As a result, cows live a pretty independent life (I […]
If you ask 100 people, you’d get 100 different definitions of ‘cool’, but this Moroccan woman fits every last one of them. Watching her cruise through the Djemaa El-Fna (Marrakech’s main square and the subject of this previous post) made me feel like real loser for walking across it all day on my own two […]
