For those unmoved by emperors and princesses, one of the most re-assuring and pleasurable sites at the Emperor’s address on January 2 of each year is the extravagant display of uniformed protection. With his yellow analog megaphone, white gloves, and pillowy lips, this policeman is welcome to tell me what to do.
“I Will Reveal That I Wear Skinny Jeans Off-Duty,” say the suspiciously well-dressed police office seen frequently at Occupy Wall Street.
According to NPR, “He stands out from the uniformed crowd because he wears skinny ties and skinny trousers and he hangs with Tom Morello and wears ironically retro grandpa sweaters.”

Tokyo has an excessive number of simply adorable male cops on foot. (No, there are no women police walking the beat). A festival or street event just brings more of them out in public. And unlike the US, many of them are good looking. While the Japanese seniors were taking photos of the procession of monks, I took advantage to capture this image of public safety.
OMG. This video contains the audio record of a 911 call *from* a cop who confiscated pot, made brownies, and then thinks he OD’d. Some choice quotes include, “I think we’re dead, I really do,” and “Time is going by really, really, really slow.”
The video also includes super snarky comments from the poster, and identifies the cop as Officer Edward Sanchez, Dearborn Michigan.
Summer in Tokyo is hot and humid. Nothing like a street fair for unapologetic, nonchalant male nudity. This tubby guy’s butt cheeks obscured the fact he was wearing a fundoshi. I like how he parades around holding but never wearing his shorts. I was in heaven.
While other mens’ short jackets covered their junk, this guy made sure that nothing was hidden.
Although I was riveted by tubby cheeks, there were many distractions. Check out this bulge, accentuated by the traditional costume.
And finally this tall cop had me wishing for detention. What could have I done to get cuffed?
I am completely obsessed by this Beyonce song and video. The song is the perfect guy’s karaoke song. And the video of Beyonce as a cop is soo hot and sad.
