Re: Japanese Pregnancy Traditions Aren't All That Traditional

Sorry to read that your wife's still having a rough go of it. My wife and I don't have kids, but I did dream last night that we have two boys. In my dream we let my brother name them, and he gave one the Japanese name Mako. There's some sort of connection there between me and you, though tenuous. (As tenuous, perhaps, as the connection between Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story).

Give me your two cents on this conundrum:

Imagine you're the guest-editor at a major gaming blog and you've been hearing people complain that game companies aren't creative enough. You've got this scan of one of the most creative things you've seen in a while. It's an old Jimmy Olsen comic you stumbled across. Really wacky stuff. You consider showing it to the readers in a post. But you fear they would say you were reaching and tell you to go back to the major media conglomerate you came from. So what do you do?

What you missed:

P.S. Oh, I can't help myself. Below the jump... it's Superman's pal!
