Phillies Pitcher in Japan Trade Prank

The Phillies have been having fun during spring training. I was especially amused since the Japanese team the kid was supposedly being sent to is the one I'll be seeing next month when they host Boston.

Take a look at this partial tracklisting from a CD of "Nice English Songs".

I don't think they sing track 11 in American schools anymore. To be fair, the Japanese does just say "I like my tiny cat". Still, I think I'll leave this one off the list of songs to be sung next year.

keep it classy, comrades

(part of) A conversation between several gentlemen over at FuckedGaijin, my favorite Japan-based English-speaking message board.
American A: Are you from Alberta?

Canadian B: Naw, my town name rhymes with vagina...yeah, we really do say it that way in Canada.

Canadian C: I had no idea you were from Mussy Lake, Ontario!
