Boobs and Tits in Japan

I can understand why the owners of a surf shop for women might choose a name for their store which reflects the gender of their target market, but surely these shopkeepers in Sumida, Tokyo, could have come up with something better than “Boobs.”

There must be alot of disappointed male customers in brown raincoats trudging out of that shop.
The same, no doubt, can be said for the following establishment, a quaint and charming tearoom in the historical city of Kyoto. It’s called “Tits Cafe.” The poor proprietors must have been innocently thinking of the little birds rather than mammary glands when they decided upon that name. I’m sure Tits gets alot of business, though!

    I can’t tell if BooB’s is supposed to be read as “boobs” or “boo-bees”, the latter being funnier to me. Ok, I’m immature. So what?

    Sorry guys, but BooBs’ closed its doors forever on the 31st. It was a sad day indeed for all BooBs lovers.

    Yeah, I just noticed that on their site! I have an annoying habit of discovering things mere days after they’ve gone. Like the bikini trombonists.

    Hi Billy- Boobies is an even better name. Maybe they can re-open under that name!

    Hey, I wonder why I’ve had an enormous spike in traffic since I wrote this post. I can’t imagine why!
