"Nuclear Boy has a stomachache"
This is how the on-going nuclear crisis at Fukushima (aka "Fu¢k You Island") is being explained to kids who have already been rattled by the earthquake and tsunami.
Three Mile Island Boy looks suspiciously like a drunken partygoer with a lampshade on his head. That would explain a lot.
(HT to "M," who first showed me this in Japanese and then alerted me when she found it with English subtitles. She notes that it's a bit of a whitewash, but that the animator-artist was going by what the Japanese government had been revealing at the time.)
