The people down at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise in Yokohama must have really been struggling for a New Year event this year. Presumably they discussed it, yet for reasons we will probably never know, they ended up opting for the sea lion-drawing-kanji-for-monkey routine. Indeed, that old chestnut.
Yes, Jonao the sea lion must have really wowed the no doubt humungous crowds as he expertly drew the kanji for monkey. Appropriately enough this year’s animal according to the Chinese zodiac. They thought of everything didn’t they?
As pathetic as this event is, what’s arguably worse is that this bloody sea lion can write kanji better than me.
There must have been some cheating going on. Surely?
