Who is that cheerful man with the adorably double-braided beard and why is he dressed up as a Japanese schoolgirl? Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft has the scoop: This is Hideaki Kobayashi and he’s known (and rightfully so) as “Sailor Suit Old Man.”

Recently, Japanese sites and Twitter users in Tokyo have spotted an old guy dressed in a sailor style school uniform—a truly unusual sight to behold. People were amused. People were baffled. What the hell was going on?!

Japanese site IT Media met Kobayashi and asked him the question on everyone’s mind: Why do you dress like a Japanese schoolgirl?

“That’s a difficult question,” said Kobayashi. “It’s not really something I’ve thought too deeply about. Hrm. I guess it’s because sailor suits look good on me?”

We hope Mr. Kobayashi has some inkling of just how awesome he is. We can’t stop smiling as we look at these photos. Head over to Kotaku to learn more about “Sailor Suit Old Man,” our new hero of Japanese weirdness.

Our goal this autumn is to get a pic with セーラー服おじさん!!

somebody get this guy a photobook. i’m looking at you, tsunku.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!

Thats right!

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.

In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.

Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.

Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 

Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.

FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

Your wonderful Mitt Romney:

  • laid off thousands of workers as head of the investment company Bain Capital.
  • set up shell companies in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to avoid U.S. taxes.
  • calls Obama’s payroll tax cut that would save middle class/lower income families $1,500 a year “temporary little band aids.”
  • plan for a “middle class tax cut” would provide zero benefits to 73.9 percent of the middle class.
  • called for taxes on the poor, saying low-income Americans having no income tax liability is “a problem” that will “kill the country.”
  • would repeal the Dodd-Frank bill, which regulates the risky practices that led to the 2008 crisis.
  • said he wants to “get the federal government out of education
  • As governor,  vetoed a minimum wage increase to $8 an hour. 
  • said he “cannot see that a Cabinet position would be justified” for an American Muslim.
  •  opposes troop withdrawal from Iraq.
  • said that catching bin Laden would be “insignificant” and it’s “not worth moving heaven and earth.”
  • supports drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
  • supports penalties for doctors who perform an abortion.
  • would “absolutely” support a state constitutional amendment to define life as beginning at conception, which would restrict women’s right to an abortion.
  • pledged to expand a Bush-Era policy of permitting doctors to deny women access to contraceptives.
  • drafted a bill to exempt a religious group from nondiscrimination rules, allowing it to ban gay couples from adopting children.
  • refused to condemn the booing of a gay soldier at a GOP debate.
  • blamed pornography for the Virginia Tech shooting. (WTF?)
  • first act as president would be to allow all states to opt out of health reform through executive action, which would be illegal.
  • feels Americans’ pain because he’s “also unemployed.” Romney was worth $250 million in 2008.
  • won’t release his tax returns.
  • “loves” george bush
  • thinks windows in airplanes should open
  • believes that rapists should have parental rights over children resulting from the rape they committed.

So no, YOU do your research. If that last three, especially, don’t make you think Romney is a complete idiot, then you’re on some other shit.

That last one actually makes me sick.

I BOLDED SOME OF THE EXTRA-INSANE ONES.

PLEASE PEOPLE. I AM BEGGING YOU. VOTE FOR OBAMA.
