The latest comfort food from Japan: Breast pudding
Being a double-entendre type of guy, I always loved the Jello commercials. After all, I grew up in the early days of "jiggle television," when wiggling and jiggling usually meant just one thing: breasts. In retrospect, I wonder if this wasn't an unspoken subtext of Jello's ad campaign. After all, while the giggly, wiggly gelatin was sure to capture the attention of children, the unspoken reference to female pulchritude might have been useful for drawing in a more adult segment of the population.
Regardless, I recently discovered that I wasn't the only one who drew a connection between the creamy wondrousness of pudding and the creamy wondrousness of mammalian protuberances. A Japanese company has released breast puddings. Sold two to a package, the jiggly treats are gelatinous, milky sweet, and are marketed with cartoons of bubbly, happy ladies. They retail for between 380 and 400 yen, or roughly $4 per package.
In case you're not inclined toward math, that also works out to approximately $2 per breast, which is a pretty good deal.
