Super Terrific Japanese Thing: Mogura Tataki


So a Japanese arcade has a Whack-a-Mole game where the moles have been replaced by dicks. Join me after the jump, won’t you?

So “mogura tataki” literally means “mole assault”, meaning Whack-a-Mole here is Whack-a-Mole there. Why this one particular Japanese arcade has replaced the moles with giant penis that thrust themselves menacingly at a player who must — and I can’t stress the weirdness of this enough — hit the penises with a giant mallet is beyond me. You know what terrifies me most about this, though? All the different shades of dick. Someone put a lot of thought into making sure there was a variety of penises to be smashed. Thanks to MattK for the tip. I think. (Via Kotaku)
