Hilarious: Hayabusa Vacuum cleaner!

Now this is hilarious: during the peak of tokusatsu popularity National (Panasonic) was selling this vacuum cleaner in 1971 with an Ultraman spoof commercial:

The Ultra woman has long vacuum cleaner like arm and is called here Hayabusa. The name is a pun on Ultraman (his real name was Shin Hayata) and literally means “peregrine falcon” which is the fastest falcon in the world. Looking at the commercial I’d say she is definitely the fastest vacuum cleaner in the world!

Hilarious: Jozin z bazin

This weeks hilarious posting is not one from

I got this one from my Polish colleagues some time ago and I can’t stop laughing about it when I see it. They told me they are a bunch of comedians who performed this song at national television in 1978.

Especially the guy with the weird voice belching into the cup. It reminds me of an old colleague who invented the “haubing”, which is a technique to sing when belching!

And the dancing guy: it looks like he’s got parkinson. The guy next to him doesn’t even move at all!

Here are the translated lyrics:

1. I drive Skoda 100 to camp here on Orawa
So I hurry, take a risk – go through Morawa
The monster lives there, comes out of the bog
Eats mostly Prague citizen, its name is Jozin (Joseph)

Chorus: Jozin from the bog creeps through swamp
Jozin from the bog closes to the village
Jozin from the bog edges its teeth
Jozin from the bog bites, strangles
To defeat Jozin from the bog, who could imagine, only works a plane with manure (white powder)

2. I was driving through the village on road to Vizowice
The village mayor greeted me, said to me during drinking Sliwowica (DIY plum vodka)
‘The one who will bring Jozin dead or alive
gets my daughter and a half of National Agrarian Farm

Chorus: Jozin…

3. I said: ‘give me a plane and powder, mayor,
I’ll bring you Jozin, I see no trouble about that’,
Mayor helped me, in the morning I went up in the sky
The powder from the plane prettily fell on Jozin
Jozin from swamp is totaly white now
Jozin from swamp is running away from the mud
Jozin from swamp ended up on the rock
Jozin from swamp will meet his end here”

I got Jozin from swamp, now I hold him in my hand
A bit of money is always nice so I will sell him to a ZOO
