Yukari, say it ain't so...

This weeks Buzz Room saw H and Y finally fulfill the promise they made early September by playing the new single on the show. Twice. OK girls, I know that you’re all up for promoting the thing, but I think that most interested parties would’ve hit the record button first time round. Anyway, I was looking forward to their diary entry this week, expecting a bit of Tip Taps Tip related nonsense. Instead, I was treated to the following grimly official looking statement.


On the broadcast of October 26th, Yukari was unable to adequately two terms of
jargon. They will be correctly explained here.
I suppose you’ve guessed that Yukari made at least a moderately serious mistake, something potentially dangerous (even libelous?) that warranted a quick retraction and a neat cover up. That’s because you’re probably a rational person who does things that make sense. As it turns out, Yukari’s crime was that she was “unable to adequately explain” one term about what a playoff means in baseball, and another about something related to Japanese company M&A Consulting.

Shock. Rage. Horror.

My question is why go to these special lengths to patronize and embarrass one of your employees over two minor and trivial errors? Are we to expect H and Y to be regularly punished for being young? I’d like to see more space devoted to that, as opposed to something stupid like, oh I don't know, a fun diary for their fans to read. I mean, come on, baseball?

Well, as a teenager, it seems like you’re required to have a full working knowledge of the following if you want to avoid a flogging by your betters.

M&A Consulting

Baseball Playoffs

Don't be caught out!

Yukari's comments about M&A Consulting were low, but being her failing to grasp a baseball playoff is unforgivable.

Do they have capital punishment in Japan? I hope so.
