Whether you think it's just more meat or a crime against nature, you have to admit that Japanese whaling has become a hot-button issue around the world. So you have to give Japan's International Fishing Show 2009 credit for throwing a little kawaii in the face of the controversy: their posters feature a super-cute pair of whales with fishing rods! Chutzpah or cluelessness? You make the call.
Admittedly, the show is aimed at sport rather than commercial fishermen. But it's still amusing, especially in light of their chairman's remarks about "the increasing importance of communication that overcomes cultural barriers."
