domo konnichiwa – “well, hello there!”
Domo (どーも くん Dōmo-kun?) is the official mascot of Japan’s NHK television station, appearing in several 30-second stop-motion interstitial sketches shown as station identification during shows. He has often been described as “a strange creature that hatched from an egg, with a large, sawtoothed mouth that is locked wide open”. Whatever you do, DO NOT make him eat apples!!! Because of an unexplained mystery in my DNA apples are a no no! He’s also been known to “pass gas repeatedly when nervous or upset” so please stay calm!
