    I think it's like how the bell is hung from a Harley. Keeps the trolls from making the bike crash.

    Oh well heck. The answer is right there in the article you posted. I was close!! :)

    “It’s Thai belief that hanging a stuffed toy from your bumper or tow loop is like paying some sort of honor or last respect to the spirits of people who died on the roads as a result of car accidents… The understanding is that the spirit is amused by the object (stuffed animal or other) and therefore doesn’t cause mischief to drivers. Nice right?. Think of it as a sort of good luck charm. ” From Fuzzpaw.

    Domo is an angry fried tofu. He's Japanese.

    Nice! I was thinking about getting one of the angry birds and hanging it from my rear bumper, but I thought it was a car thing...

    No I'm not turning Japanese. I've been watching Japanese anime since I was bout 6-7 years old.

    I watch pretty much all the anime I can find. I have over 1tb stored on my PC and at least 300 dvd's.

    Which none of that is really good anime. Zoids is american as well if I'm thinking the CGI show.

    Start with a classic. Akira. If you like it, move on.. IF not, don't bother with Anime.

    Cowboy Bebop is good to start with, as well as Trigun.
