Monkey Waiters in Japan

I totally need to go to Japan. BBC reported that a restaurant there has two monkeys bringing the diners hot towels and bottles of booze in exchange for soya bean tips. You can see the film here. Good thing this isn't happening in the U.S., because they'd start whining about immigrant primates taking American jobs.

If I go to Japan I'll have to be careful where I stay. CNN reported that a recent survey by the Japanese government found that about a quarter of Japanese hotels didn't have any foreign guests last year, and don't want them. They claim they don't have the facilities or the language capability to deal with foreign guests. C'mon folks, you live in a global economy and you're in the hotel industry. Hire some recent graduates with language skills.
