Daily Mail – The station master in a small Japanese town knows little about trains and is more interested in naps and treats than in schedules, which is not surprising because she is a cat. Since 2007, a calico named Tama has served as Super Station Master of Kishi station in Kinokawa City – the last stop on the Wakayama Electric Railway. A decade earlier, the small regional train line had been losing $4.7million a year, with trains almost always running empty. But with the appointment of the furry station master, the town’s flagging fortunes experienced a remarkable turnaround, The Atlantic Cities reported. The tiny, provincial municipality became an overnight tourist destination. Visitors from across the country have been flocking to the provincial town just to take a picture with Tama. In the process, the railway system that at one time had been on the verge of bankruptcy got a $10.4million boost thanks to travelers eager to see the four-legged railway official. Beside boosting ridership, Tama has inspired a whole line of cat-themed products, from T-shirts, stuffed animals and other souvenirs to a full set of dining room furniture emblazoned with the kitty’s likeness. In 2009, the railway eager to cater to Tama’s fans unveiled a special cat-themed train featuring cartoon depictions of everyone’s favorite feline.
Out of all the weird shit the Japanese do, and there is a lot, this might take the cake. Traveling far and wide to see a cat dressed up like a goddam train conductor. Turning the railway from a 4 million dollar loss to a 10 million dollar profit. Just to be able to take pictures with this goddam cat. Ordinarily when I hear about a Japanese obsession with pussy, it makes a lot more sense. Usually those ones are pixelated and on the receiving end of a 4 inch thrashing and perhaps some bukakke but at least that kinda makes sense. This time its just a goddam pussy cat with a fucking hat on his head. A whole line of merchandise has been made off of this little motherfucker. Unbelievable.
I don’t know why people spend their time speculating about aliens and what they would be like because we got Asians on the very same planet as us that are 100% a different species. They’re like internal aliens. Don’t worry about finding new lifeforms in the next galaxy because just across the Pacific is a whole bunch of fuckin lunatic weirdos who love nothing but cats and sexual assault.
