Brian Young thought everyone would appreciate seeing this

(WARNING: wooden phallus and odd phrasing ahead)

According to Brian, "the Engrish in the following image is priceless..."

Here's the story: "KAWASAKI -- Thousands flocked to a small shrine here Sunday to take part in the Kanamara Festival, an event with roots dating back centuries and known for its huge consecrated phallus portable shrine carried mostly by transvestites.

"Revelers also watched mostly young women sit atop huge wooden penises made as Shinto totems, each woman sparking a rapid-fire succession of camera flashes from the dozens of mostly middle-aged men armed with digital cameras."

Thanks, Brian.
