HEADLINE – Gov’t focus on nuke crisis angers tsunami victims

RIKUZENTAKATA, Japan – As Japan’s prime minister held another in an endless stream of press conferences to describe in great detail the Japanese government’s efforts to fix damaged nuclear reactors, frustrated tsunami victims complained that the government has been too focused on the nuclear crisis that followed the massive wave.

“Hey! Over here! 165,000 people living in cardboard boxes and packing crates! HELLO?? Is anyone home??” 35-year-old Megumi Shimanuki shouted at the Prime Minister from the crowd gathered at the press conference. “Yeah, yeah, highly radioactive water is leaking into the sea. Blah, blah, blah. I need a house,” Shimanuki yelled.

“Go find the corporate executives and their stooge government regulators who willfully and knowingly decided to operate unsafe nuclear reactors right near the ocean, line them up against a wall, and shoot them,” suggested Ken Hashimoto, a fellow tsunami evacuee.



“Kill them all, then confiscate their multiple homes, expensive automobiles and jewelry they bought with the profits they made cutting safety corners.  Sell that property and use the money to get me some food,” Hashimoto added.

  1. Look if they really want to government to refocus attention their way they are going to have to find either a cute child, or movie star who is living in the refugee camps. Sheesh do these people knows nothing about PR?


  2. Obviously the have been “westernized” in old Japan there was no need for an execution, the executives would have taken care of that detail themselves; or so I’ve heard. Anyway shooting is to good for them.


  3. I’m sure its all part of some crazy Japanese game show.


  4. I’m just wondering if the next batch of Japanese car imports are going to glow in the dark.

    Therbs: Yes, and the prize they give away can be “nuclear bonus material” – a much nicer way of referring to nuclear waste.

    Cat: I would be very surprised if that happened. But then – and I am not equating the Japanese with the Chinese – the Chinese have been dealing with their toxic waste problem by incorporating it into the products they sell and then shipping it out of the country. I would hate to think that the Japanese might embrace that business model.
