Mystery of the Shooting Boobs Solved!

I am so frickin' excited... I can hardly contain myself. Seriously. It's amazing news and I'm beside myself!

I know... you're wondering... what could get me into such a frenzy other than stumbling upon an 18 month old chocolate bunny I had stashed away in my pantry...


Heh. I love the blogosphere. Whilst y'all were working, blogging, or going about your general life, I was receiving comments on THIS post... my childhood Meme post, from a blogger named Brian.

Brian... has found... the name... of that Japanese cartoon my brother and I used to watch when we lived in Taiwan in 1977-1978! The one with the female robot who shot her tits off! Yes! It was shown here in America in the mid 80's as Tranzor-Z. The main robot was Mazinger-Z and the female boob shooting side kick was Aphrodite-A.

He even got us links for pictures which I have linked to their names above!

And Brian's quote cracked me up

Since the series ran in the mid-80s in the US, it stuck in my memory....giant exploding robot boobs can do that to a young boy.

With that.... meet blogger Brian at Point Two Percent who is now on my blogroll. I enjoyed his post on what he does with M&Ms... I must try this... after our weight loss competition. Heh.

So... Thank you Brian. Now I am trying to figure out how this name Mazinger-Z fits into the Chinese name I have in my head.

And to think how many hours I tried googling that cartoon... typing in things like:
'robots shoot boobs' 'breast rockets' 'tit missiles' 'pink robot shoots boobs' 'japanese anime 70s pink robot boob missiles'.

Yeah. Nothing. And my brother was searching too... The Blogosphere came through. Life is good!

*Can't wait to see what I get googled for on this post. Great.

I think you found a Christmas present for TN

Posted by: Sissy at June 13, 2005 09:49 PM

WOW, very exciting- I loved imitating the female robot. I'm feeling a tad nostalgic...thanks Brian.

You're just jealous Morrigan as you don't probably remember her... you were 6! I think you were still in your Wonderwoman phase...

Posted by: Bou at June 13, 2005 09:54 PM

yeah, so how many Japanese porn sites did you end up at?

Posted by: Aris_Ravencroft at June 13, 2005 11:00 PM

Can you believe, none? Not one. I think it was putting missile and boobs together that kept me off pron sites.

Posted by: Bou at June 13, 2005 11:03 PM

Bou first of all YEAH, second we need to get you a "silk screen" t-shirt with that image on it.

On the other side of this....please do not tell me you know Chinese in addition to all of your other talents?

Posted by: ArmyWifeToddlerMom at June 13, 2005 11:46 PM

LOL - you should've asked Harvey for some suggestions on what to google... *grin*

Posted by: Teresa at June 14, 2005 12:22 AM

Wow... that is so... special. Althought I could see how young boys would be fascinated with it... I can see how adult men could be fascinated with a live action version of it too.

Posted by: Contagion at June 14, 2005 08:27 AM

That is tooooo funny! Pink robot shoots boobs??? Now I really want to see it!

Posted by: Julie at June 14, 2005 08:39 AM

Bou, you've got to be sh*tting me. I don't rememeber? It was the only show I remember considering there was nothing else to watch! Do you not remember my having to set the table and using the dinner glasses as my missles?

Posted by: Morrigan at June 14, 2005 09:10 AM

Oh Morrigan! I just got this picture in my mind of you *even though I haven't a clue what you look like* like a fembot but with dinner glasses attached to your chest!

Posted by: Oddybobo at June 14, 2005 09:40 AM

Glad I could help bring back some happy memories.

And, yes...I'm sure you're climbing right up the Google ranks even now. :)

Posted by: Brian at June 14, 2005 10:37 AM

Great. Now I won't be able to get the image out of my head (or the silly grin off my face) all day.

What /will/ my clients think?


Posted by: David at June 14, 2005 10:40 AM

Well, David...as long as you leave the coffee mugs on the desk.....

I'd guess not much. :)

Posted by: Brian at June 14, 2005 11:06 AM

Who knew that shooting boobs could lead to chocolate goodness???

Posted by: Richmond at June 14, 2005 02:44 PM

Mo, you still do that with the dinner glasses!!

Posted by: spurs at June 14, 2005 03:32 PM

I feel fairly certain the my commenters are always 10X funnier than any frickin' post I put up.

Y'all crack me up.

AWTM- No I only knew (note the past tense) the basic Chinese... how to order, ask for directions, buy something in the market, and cuss.

Morrigan- I forgot about the glasses! You don't remember the horrible Chinese soap operas?

Heh, and to all my readers, Mo and I aren't built alike. I would need the glasses... she would NOT.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 05:33 PM

Lai, lai, chocoli...

Posted by: Toluca Nole at June 14, 2005 05:52 PM

I remember that one. Wait... What was the other? It was almost like they were trying to see in English, but it was broken...

Bingo... Bingocoatsyatongue. It sounded like Bingo, Bingo coats your tongue. It was that gum we bought and when you bit on it, it exploded cherry crap in your mouth...

God only knows what that was made of considering their piss poor cleanliness standards. *shudder* I hate to think of some of the crap we ate now from that market!!!

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 06:00 PM

"Bingo, candy coats your tongue" -- lost flavor after 5 seconds. Can't remember the name of the other gum -- kids said it was made of pig fat. It certainly chewed like pig fat. No flavor there either. Remember the yeast pills that looked like M & M's? Good time feeding those to the little kids at the bus stop.

Posted by: Toluca Nole at June 14, 2005 06:12 PM

Yeah, I remember the pig fat gum. It was slimy and gross. And there version of sour candies. Holy crap, what in hell was that made of? It was brown and crusty and chewy. Looking back, it looked like old shrivled up testicle skin.

Oh... I get googled for comments too. This is going to be lovely.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 06:15 PM

HEY!!! I still eat those! I get them in Chinatown and Little Tokyo. And I like them!!! And you bought me some years ago when you went to San Francisco. I think they're dried up plums.

Posted by: Toluca Nole at June 14, 2005 06:20 PM

LOL! Oh yeah! I remember now. heh heh heh! They had to put some spice or something on them because I never found the draw to them you boys did. Blech.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 06:23 PM

My buddy also buys me Pokis at the Japanese market.

Posted by: Toluca Nole at June 14, 2005 06:26 PM

He does not! Do they taste the same? I haven't seen Pokis since we left. How in the heck did he know you ate those?!

Time for me to find some good old fashioned Chinese Market.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 06:29 PM

I described them and he knew exactly what they were -- taste the same, but I get a variety of flavors. Not that we had it in Taiwan, but I've also had a lot of kimchi lately. Dad might vomit just reading that sentence.

Posted by: Toluca Nole at June 14, 2005 06:33 PM

I'll be passing on the kimchi, thank you.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 06:42 PM

Ya'll are crackin' me up!

And that gum....I know that gum! Eck. After 5 seconds, I felt like I wanted to vomit. But I kept going back for more!

Posted by: Sissy at June 14, 2005 07:42 PM

Wasn't there thin clear paper-like candy that shrivled on your tongue? I remember the gum too but I don't remember how long it lasted.

Posted by: Morrigan at June 14, 2005 10:22 PM

I think it was rice paper. I don't recall liking it much. It got sticky on your tongue and was very sweet.

Posted by: Bou at June 14, 2005 10:30 PM

Eh! Rice paper sucked!!

Posted by: Sissy at June 15, 2005 06:01 AM

Poki...those the same as Pocky? Biscuit sticks coated in flavored stuff, usually a chocolate type confection?

Those things are great. Thankfully the asian markets around Boston and Cambridge carry most flavors.

There's several places online that sell them now. I'd link my favorite, but they just closed up shop :( , so you'll have to google for it yourself

Posted by: Brian at June 15, 2005 09:08 PM

mnletomol.com product was surprisingly credible

Posted by: Avy Scott at July 23, 2005 08:23 AM
