Nice hat, Bitch!

A sunny Shinjuku morning as I stroll with a slight jaunt in my step when suddenly I am stopped in my tracks…….

A cute young Japanese girl sits waiting for a bus, but wait, what the FUCK is that hat she is wearing?
Breathing deep to regain some composure I wander over and ask in my politest Japanese (dripping with sarcasm I like to feel but probably not so much:) “Can I take a picture of your hat?”

“Sure” she replies looking a little flattered.

She puts down her phone and adjusts her pose, I fire off a few shots and thank her and walk away before I break her nose.

It wasn’t the first time and I’m sure it won’t be the last, but everytime it leaves me boiling inside faced with the only two possible explanations:-

1) you know what it is and you don’t care – punch in the face richly deserved

2) you don’t know what it is, it’s just ‘fashion’ – punch in the face for being a fucking idiot richly deserved.

I try not to be angry, really I do, but in the face of this girl, and this and this  (and there are more trust me)………how the fuck am I supposed to remain calm?

    Oh, it looks like there’s a small cute accessory pin in her hair. Surely that must make her an acceptable fashionista in Japan.

    I think you’re a violent brainless idiot. Japan was allies with Germany during WWII, thus the Japanese idol and fashionize the uniform. They see it as harmless and don’t care. They after all were militant as well. Many people from all over the world wear nazi memorabilia as a fashion. Grow up and stop thinking its cute saying you want to hit a woman. That makes you just as bad as, if not worse than Hitler.

    Dear nameless.
    You are right, saying that I think one girl deserves a punch is exactly comparable with Hitler murdering 6,000,000 Jews.
    How could I have missed that.
    My apologies.

    She’s so cute! Why is Germany always so good at fashion?
