    Why are shocking Japanese videos funnier than shocking American videos?

    I was just on this site called Shock Magazine that has all sorts of shocking stuff, including a Japanese section. Here's one:

    here's another (this one is slightly risque, but still PG-13 rated):

    Why so funny? Why?

    Thats easy. Because in some Asian countries the human rights law are more lax, as in America people can file a lawsuit so fast that companies can lose lots of money fast

    Yeah, but did you actually watch the videos in question? I mean, how would a lawsuit get filed about the girl in the polar bear suit playing with the real polar bear? I mean, some of them are just funnier from a cultural standpoint, that's what I'm more amazed by.

    I get what you're saying, though, I guess we don't have gameshows like this in the US: http://www.shocku.com/videos/index.php?v=942&beg=&t=32

    Hm. Well, if you know where it is lemme know, I like funny Japanese stuff. That shocku.com site has some gems that aren't Japanese as well, like this old anti-drug commercial tickles me funnybone: http://www.shocku.com/videos/index.p...ns&o=nouv&beg=

    I guess for it to be funny to me it has to be either old or foreign.
