Japan has hosted what I assume must be the world’s first ever adult diaper fashion show as diaper manufacturers try to cash on that country’s rapidly growing market of old people who can’t hold in their pee anymore. “Diapers are something that people don’t want to look at,” said Kiyoko Hamada of the Aging Lifestyle Research Center, a leading organizer of the show. “But if you make them attractive, then people can learn about them more easily,” she said. She also might have taken the opportunity to remind young people to enjoy the simple pleasures of life -- like a properly-functioning bladder. (JapanToday.com)
