The Prime Minister's wife is a space cadet
That's right. A certified fruitloop.
Yukio Hatoyama, the incoming prime minister, has an interesting wife. She is emerging as eccentric counterpoint to her boring as guano husband. While Yukio talks of international relations, Miyuki talks of interplanetary travel and...eating the sun:
"I eat the sun. Like this. Yum yum." Raising her hands in an interview and pretending to tear pieces off the sun. "It gives me enormous energy".
Well, nuclear fusion is likely to do that.
And in her book Very strange things I've encountered she related being abducted by aliens some 20 years ago and taken to Venus, which was..."a very beautiful place, very green."
She also reckons she knew Tom Cruise in a past life. I wonder if he remembers.
But I say bring it on. We need a dose of the alternative in Japan.
