Oh, Snap! Obama Attends An Actual Kabuki Theater Performance

How perfect is this?

It wasn’t quite a Kennedy Center Honors Award show, but the entertainment in Yokohama, Japan Saturday evening made President Obama smile as Japanese performers of traditional Kabuki theater put on a show for world leaders in town for the APEC summit.

Kabuki is highly stylized Japanese singing and dancing which has been a tradition since the 17th century

So, the man who has perfected stylized political theater finally was able to attend the real thing. Video at the link. Oh, and thanks for apparently being the only person who’s munching on a snack or gum.

    So funny- I said the same thing- what WAS he chewing on while there?
    Nicorette perhaps?

  4. Hmm, you could be right. Notice that he chews, then stops, looks like he is putting it in his cheek. With nicotine gum, that is what you’re supposed to do, chew until you feel a tingling to release the nicotine, get a bit of relief, then stop till you need more.

    Exactly! I don’t know how long the show was, but it may have been too long to go wihtout a smoke!
