There has been an earthcake
Ok, considering the tragic earthquake that recently happened in NZ, with several Japanese still missing and presumably trapped in the rubble, it might be in a little bad taste, but it made me think of this classic telephone call from a Swedish reporter to some random hotel in Tokyo (apparently it was very early morning with other places unavailable) to try and find out how "bad" it was. I think it also was a quite mild one by Japanese standards that no one in Tokyo got particularly freaked out by. The level of misunderstanding here is magnificent!
