Even The Dry Cleaner Tried To Blame Yoko For Their Problems

Um, yeah, so…there’s really nothing that isn’t awesome about this letter John Lennon wrote to his laundry service in the 70′s:

Things that I reallyreally love about it:

  1. For once, the cleaners being yelled at aren’t Asian.
  2. The cleaners are being yelled at BY A BEATLE.
  3. Learning something new about Yoko, i.e. that she doesn’t sweat.
  4. The line “(MOST ORIENTALS DO NOT SWEAT LIKE US),” which I also interpret to mean “Most Orientals Do Not Smell Like Us,” which is true (read this if you don’t believe me).

ROCK OF ASIAN

September 12th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

What happens when you get put a queer alt-rock dude from Imperial Teen (Will Schwartz) together with a Japanese electro-prince from The Boy Explodes (Tomo Yasuda)?

You get a band called Hey Willpower, that totally effing rules.

And what happens when that effing ruling band plays plucky homage to John and Yoko vis à vis a “bed-in-for-peace” begging citizens to “Give dance a chance?” in a music vid for their track, “Double Fantasy II?”

We clap our hands.
We wave ‘em in the air.
Like we just don’t care.

And then we yell, in unison…

“HOORAYSIAN!”
