City Sushi

South Park why won't you just die already?
While I certainty don't hate the show, in fact I've watched nearly every single episode including the new episode last night "City Sushi" and while it was still very funny (unlike a some of the other episodes this season like Royal Pudding, FunnyBoy, and TMI) it certainty lacks the charm that South Park used to have. While it had a nice exploration of Butters, it didn't even include the 4 main characters (Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny).
City Sushi at least was a character based humor episode, I much prefer character based episodes where there the comedy comes from the actual characters instead of episodes like Crack Baby Athletic Association where Matt and Trey don't even try and hide the "hidden message" inside the episode and instead just outline their opinions (In this case how the NCAA doesn't pay it's players the amount they should be). South Park is a shell of it's former self and at the rate most of the episodes have been this season I would not be surprised if Matt and Trey decide to end the series in a few years.

paku-paku taberu (パクパク食べる)

paku-paku = to flap ones mouth open and closed
taberu = eating

there's some Japanese for you, so now along with domo arigato (thank you ありがとう) and konichiwa (hello こんにちは ) you now know 4 words in Japanese. Congrats, you already know 50% more Japanese words than the average American.

Along with this interesting tidbit of information, I also wanted to make sure everyone with an android phone knew that today on the Amazon App Store you can download PacMan for free! Below I have provided a link for it. It's identical to the original arcade game except that it uses a virtual touch screen joystick, fear not the virtual joystick works surprisingly well, so I recommend all of you download it and play it. Have fun!
