Pizza magnet


Pizza-la is giving away refrigerator magnets featuring Bae Yong Joon, the wildly popular Korean star of “Winter Sonata.” He is adored by middle aged women who swoon over the romantic storyline of the show.

I’m willing to part with the magnet I received with last night’s pizza.

I’ll mail it anywhere in the world to whomever gives me the best reason for wanting it. To play, post your reasons in the comments by noon JST on April 20.

#1. Perhaps our local Japanese Deli will find this piece a “must have” and I get langiappe. (see New Orleans slang). or,

#2. I did not even know what a blog was (and then I did not begin one until I read media tinker from a-z), I feel like this would be a GIGantic Prize… oh and of course I would have to post the whole she-bang to my readers.

Damn, he does look an awful lot like a prepubescent Harry Potter, doesn’t he…
When put in parallel with the troubling feelings he elicits from the older generation in Japan, that’s kinda creepy actually…

I would have thought that MJ’s J-mum would be swooning over this one!!

Dang, I was gonna offer a trade with one of mine but after looking at them and thinking of photographing one to offer up I can’t part with any. However, spreading memes this way is a good idea and I suggest you try to make sure that magnet leaves Japan and another, say from Moody’s Diner in Maine enters.

I think J-Mum already has one.

Unfortunately the delivery boy wouldn’t give her his badge as well….

Why not save yourself some money and just trash it? I wonder if everyone else is as sick of all these “pretty boy” and “pretty girl” idols as I am…
