    This needs a caption: " and .. so I told them... I am going to borrow money from our future generations thereby indebting them beyond any hope.. get all the old to vote for us and make them believe the country is heading in the right direction" To which Aso replies: Maybe we could start a war with our neighbours and then enslave them for chap labour.... it's why my family is so rich now". Cue maniacal laughing

    Abe: "That radar-lock gag was a gem, Aso... a gem! Good thing they don't actually DEMAND we show them proof!"

    Aso: "Can you believe these suckers voted us in AGAIN? Can we change positions in a few months? And buy the way, how do you read this Kanji character on today's 'to do' list?"

    Abe: "That's 'shima'. We need to create more island controversy to take the focus off the fact we don't know what we're doing."
