  1. As a fully trained Psychologist (yeh) I find this kind of humour incredibly distasteful. It’s not funny to take the p*ss out of mentally ill people. The fairy on my shoulder can’t help it if she has to count every hair on my head before we are allowed to leave the house. Why are you bullying me in this way?! Somebody pass me the Prozac. 🙂

  2. Hm..what number shall I press? Maybe I should hang up and commit suicide!

  3. Ooops, up the dosage, she’s slipping, she’s slipping…

  4. Hello kamikazenaz! you wrote
    “Hey N, you should know. What’s the Japanese show where people create illusions on stage with costumes and props and stuff? You know, with a black screen behind and then something moves and then you realise that was a man with a hat on, etc. (poor attempt at explaining, me knows). ”

    It took me a minute for what you wrote to sink in but I think I know what you are referring to. Its a show full of differnt contestants who are amatuers and are voted by a panel of celebrities right? I think you are talking about Kinchan’s annual kasoh-taisho. I could be wrong but your description fits.
    Try searching: 欽ちゃん& 香取慎吾の新!仮装大賞 or kin chan kaso taisho

    or have a look at http://www.kasoh.com/english/index.html

    hope this answers your query 🙂
