Gross KeyChain Holder Will Scare Everyone (Well Me, At Least)

If you are tired of losing keys, this roach clip will keep them in a safe place.
I cannot stand roaches and I am cringing as I write this, I am such a dedicated blogger!

I also find it odd, it is a roach and you clip it to you... hmmm maybe there are many layers to this gag gift besides just a scary gross roach.

If you are a fan of roaches, sick of losing your keys, enjoy pot innuendos, and do not care about scaring off the single ladies, the keychain is only 630 yen! Order via Rinkya Stores

Win Arcade Mania from Nihon Sun!

Nihon Sun has Arcade Mania! up for grabs on their site! All you need to do is answer three short trivia questions!

Arcade Mania introduces overseas readers to the fascinating world of the Japanese gemu senta. Organized as a guided tour of a typical game center, the book is divided into nine chapters, each of which deals with a different kind of game, starting with the UFO catchers and print club machines at the entrance and continuing through rhythm games, fighting games, shooting games, retro games, gambling games, card-based games, and only-in-Japan games.

Covering classic games from Space Invaders to Street Fighter, games that are familiar to Americans in their home console versions (Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Dance, Dance Revolution), as well as the unique, quirky games found only in Japan, Arcade Mania is crammed full of interviews with game makers and star players, and packed with facts about the history, background and characteristics of each game, all lavishly illustrated with photographs and game graphics. This book is a must-have for gamers everywhere.

Read Nihon Sun for the rules and trivia!

Good Luck Readers!
