Ending 2010 on a classy note here with this pinup poster of the Japanese pop group called AKB48, which near as I can tell from the web site has something to do with the fact that there is apparently at least 48 girls in the group at any given time. I ‘m not even kidding. It’s crazy, it looks like they have different shifts of girls. Sometimes there are like five girls in a video, sometimes fifteen. They have team rosters. Maybe it’s a competition, or whatever it is, I think my failure to comprehend goes deeper than just not understanding Japanese. There are 48 girls in the group. A lot of them have bikinis, but only six of them have skateboards.
