Entertaining Kids Is Effing Hard Work

Children! You have no idea how good you have it. Just wait until you grow up and find yourself dragging your own kids to cartoon events like this. Or worse, performing on stage—especially when you're not up to it.

Here, you can see characters from Anpanman, the beloved children's anime, at what looks like a local shopping mall in Japan. It's business as usual, expect for Shokupanman ("White Bread Man"). He's on the far left. Things start to go south about ten seconds in. Be sure to stick around until the end.

Online in Japan, people wonder if the character costume wasn't too damn hot, and the person inside was feeling faint or having a hell of a time trying to see.

You'd think with those other superheroes on stage, they could've helped White Bread Man out!

I haven't had white bread in 4 years, actually make that 6 years. In high school my stepmom would buy shitty whole grain bread and it was terrible, tasted like cardboard, then I moved out and started buying potato bread which I figured was good for you because potatoes are a vegetable right? Made sense in my dumb 20 year old head. Fast forward three years and my girlfriend tells me potato bread is actually bad for you and she makes us buy shitty whole grain bread and I say fuck it and stop eating sandwiches all together after cursing out God for a couple hours.

Now when I bring sandwiches to work I make them on buttered bagels. Literally nothing better than a few slices of ham slapped on a buttered toasted bagel. Oh and fuck cheese I used to love cheese on sandwiches until I ran out and found out everythings better WITHOUT that shit.
