….when you have Kleenex sticking out of your nose! But that’s just how Hideo Higashikokubaru, a one-time comedian using the stage name Sonomanma Higashi, and currently the Governor of Miyazaki prefecture in southern Japan, is portrayed on this tissue box cover.
I found this product while browsing through my local mall and just couldn’t stop laughing. I thought it was hilarious even before my friend told me who he was. He ran for governor on the slogan “dogenkasento ikan,” or “something must be done” and I know just what he should do – get them to stop selling this product. He just looks silly!
If you don’t believe me check out his photo on the Miyazaki Prefecture website.
