Second careers for the elderly

CNN had an interesting report today about an elderly Japanese man who retired from his rather staid career as a travel agent, and now at the age of 73 has become quite a celebrity. I'm not sure exactly what it says about senior citizens and popular culture in general, but Japan has become quite the trend setter in recent years.

  1. I had an odd feeling I would regret this as soon as I clicked the link. At least they didn't show him performing with Lolitas, which is apparently a big thing with Japanese businessmen.

    I suppose there is a new career option to consider...

  2. Well, um. Heh. Heh. Good thing I didn't click that before I read Dr. Know's comment.

    I mean, I don't want to get all excited and stuff.

  3. Hey, I left a clue - I labeled it "porn."
