PURI PURI HAKASE (プリプリはかせ) - Daily Inspiration from a Talking Turd!!
'Only in Japan!!' as the well-worn expression goes.
An animated interlude on the long canceled children's TV show Ugo Ugo Ru-ga (ウゴウゴルーガ) -- backwards word play on Go Go Girl -- Puri Puri Hakase (プリプリはかせ) is a talking turd that rises up out of a toilet bowl to give the happy little children of Japan a few choice words of inspiration. What better way to start their little days?
For the Japanese challenged, this one says: "You can still look cool doing something UN-cool, as long as you try your best." Nice. (I wish I had this sort of TV parenting when I was a wee-lad.) Link(J).
