I had a favorite muesli bowl that I brought from Japan, and also purchased in a 100 Yen store. By the way, we saw that a few people caught the hidden joke in the last strip. But for all those who didn’t: “Hyaku en” is not the name of a famous Japanese pottery artist, but means “100 yen” (which is about one US dollar).
Ironically enough, that bowl met the same fate as Chuck’s. Maybe I should hang up some safety posters in my kitchen!
