Saturday Swag from Osaka-Kansai International Airport

I'm blogging this from a terminal at KIX, dealing with a funky-ass keyboard, and spending money at a rate of 100 yen (about a dollar) per TEN MINUTES' USE. This reminds me of Europe. Come to think of it, the keyboard reminds me of Europe, where keyboards vary from country to country (any hope for a standardized EU? HA!). Since I'm here for a bit, and today is Saturday Swag, I thought I'd re-paste last Saturday's wares. Also, if you've got friends who're into cryptography, tell them to take a gander at the riddle sitting at the very bottom of my sidebar. No hints. See if you can discover the right decryption algorithm. For the hardcore, this should be easy beans. I'm even thinking about offering a monetary prize.

The folk understanding of karma is, "What goes around comes around." The Korean Buddhist expression for this is captured by the Sino-Korean phrase "In Gwa Eung Bo." The "in" comes from the word "weon-in," which means "cause." The "gwa" is from "gyeol-gwa," which is "result" or "effect." As a pair, "in-gwa" means "cause and effect." The next pair of syllables, "eung-bo," means something like "retribution."

Fart in an elevator and someone might just kick you in the balls.

In this case, I used Korean letters instead of Chinese characters.

Buy an In Gwa Eung Bo mug today!

Visit my CafePress store and shop around!

Buy my filthy, gross, disgusting book of poetry, cartoons, and short stories from Amazon!

Or visit my swag blog, Only the Chewiest Tumors, and order several copies of my book directly from me at a discount!

Bowls of warm bile await you.

Oh, by the way-- for you intellectual types-- I've whipped up what I think is a pretty mean brain-teaser. It's all the way at the bottom of my sidebar. Think you have the mental balls to figure it out? Go on and give it a try. I'm thinking I might want to give away a prize to the winner... what would be a good prize? Free blogging rights to my blog for three days? $50?? Some free Hominid swag (pick any 3 items)?? I'll have to mull this one over.

If you don't see anything you like at my stores, visit the Maximum Leader's CafePress store and take a gander at the fast-burgeoning designs of the very talented Digital Pixi!

Don't forget my previous mug designs:
