Oh, the Joys of Japanese Television

As many of you have been made aware of by now either through Chris Farley and SNL or by the wonderful powerhouse that is YouTube, Japanese game shows are the bee's knees. Going from just bizarre to flat out crazy they cover an area that most American game shows just don't like to go to.

Some videos...after the jump.

These game shows are notorious for beating up on their contestants, but nothing beats this one where men are forced to answer questions correctly or they may lose their right to bear children.

As for my favorite, try keeping your cool in a library where you must be quiet while being punished.

But it's great to know that when all is said and done, the contestants let Kickboxing Champion Ernesto Hoost sing a little karaoke in their private suite.

Oh, and a special thanks to Man Man for rocking my ass off last night.
