‘The Morning Goolies’ presented by Japan Broadcasting.net Corporation
The ingenious poet graciously mocks and castigates the crippled language-education system of Japan, as well as the self-described journalists and irresponsible medias across the country.
“The teachers and adults can’t speak colloquial English properly. So it’s technically impossible for the kids to assimilate”, says lyricist Yujiro, adding; “It is no wonder that even after learning Edgar Alan Poe stories for ten whole years from age 8 to 18 in public institutions, no Japanese MLB player can respond to ESPN interviews without a translator. Hideo Nomo, Hideki Irabu, Ichiro Suzuki, Hideki Matsui, Iwakuma Hisashi, Yu Darvish, Matsuzaka or whoever, you name it. It’s a shame really, for they are ineligible to connect directly heart and soul with fans directly even after living in America for a bloody decade! Preposterous! You see, nothing has changed in our unintelligible Ministry of Education since 1868. The rudiment of mastering Gaijin language itself is dead”.
We, the editorial staffs of Team JB though is hopeful that Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani will blast 50 homers and steal 50 bases this year!
