  1. narrioch Said,

    I've heard of Jack Bauer before, but not this 'Jack-qu' Bauer!


  2. this honestly can't be real. really? are those the actual translations of the lyrics. wow.


  3. Mister B Said,

    I now realize the true teaching of the show, because, really...

    we are ALL Jack Ku-Bowa...

    aren't we?

    This made me want to laugh out loud and stab my ears at the very same time. Tough to juggle, yes, but I really, really wanted to do it!


  5. Rosie's Japanese teacher, Kata-Sensei, says these are real. I don't know if he can be completely trusted, though I do think he always tells the truth!


  6. I love Japanese art, fashion, history, food, but DAMN, I HATE Japanese TV! As if their own shows are not already bad enough, they have to go and make American shows as stupid as their's!


  7. That...that left a mark.


  8. I can't stop singing it! "Oowweeaahh Jack-uh Bowwaahh!"

    Thank you. I am now bleeding from the neck.
