The flag will be flown at half-stiff.

Was it ever not trendy? (via Tengaman/YouTube)

You know how we have National Pancake Day in America? Well, Japan has something similar, but instead of pancakes, it's with hand jobs. The Japanese sex toy company Tenga has deemed tomorrow national "Hand Job Day." Similar to how free Slurpee day falls on July 11th (7/11, i.e. seven-eleven), they're using the numbers of the date as a marketing strategy:

The reason is that “masturbation" in Japanese is “onanii" (オナニー), which is a pun on 07.21 (“o" for “zero"; “na" for “seven" or “nana" in Japanese; “ni" means “two" in Japanese; and here, they're making a pun on the long vowel mark “ー" by saying it refers to “一" or “ichi," which means “one.") So, “Jerk Off Day" is probably more accurate
