Support Whom?

August 16th, 2011

I was behind a truck in traffic for a bit today. On the back of the truck, there was a ribbon decal. Wondering what cause the trucker was supporting, I read carefully at the next stop. It said, “Support Our Troops.”

Now, in an American context, there’s simply nothing strange about that. But this is Japan. And the decal was in English. So, WTF? It could be just another decoration where a Japanese person chose a random English-language design without understanding what it meant. Still, it strikes me as odd.

    Either Rupert Murdock has stretched his wings to Japan, or it’s a little bit like an American wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt.
