Why is the bird so sweaty?

Also, they kind of are the "tree nut" club.

Very entertaining and educational. Love that he's wearing Wada's number.

Keep in mind, the number 18 in much of Asian baseball signifies the ace of the staff. You typically see a lot of established NPB pitchers assume that number when they play stateside.

Jon, I'd like to request permission to use one of the above images as my new Twitter avatar

Triple R said...

Yes, me as well.

Jon Shepherd said...

It should be fine to use something as your avatar.

Triple R said...

I'm using your image, though -- with the translation. Is that acceptable?

Jon Shepherd said...

Sure, just give us some love if anyone asks about it.

Jon Shepherd said...

Mind you all...this is not my original artwork, so if anyone plans on selling things with the likenesses above then you have to track down the guy who made the original comic. Here...we abide by fair use. The Depot is not monetized.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but the Korean number 18 sounds very similar to a very bad Korean word.
