Governor of Fukushima: "Look, I'm Now World-Famous Thanks to Fukushima Disaster!"

Who needs these governors (like the one in Tokyo)?

Surrounded by the young beauties from Asian countries, Yuhei Sato, governor of Fukushima Prefecture, apparently said the following, according to Nikkan Gendai magazine (11/1/2011):

日本や韓国、シンガポールなどアジアンビューティー12人を前に佐藤知事は終始ニッコニコ。原発事故で「FUKUSHIMA」が世界的に有名になったことを強調し、「福島で(ショーを)やったということは、みなさんが世界で有名なモデルになる前提になると思いますよ」とまず一発。さらに「私は(大震災発生の)3月11日から毎日のようにテレビ、メディアに出させていただいております。おかげさまで今、世界中で最も有名な首長、知事は私かもわかりません」とやらかした。

Governor Sato was all smiles in front of 12 Asian beauties from Japan, Korea, Singapore, etc. He emphasized that "Fukushima" became world-famous because of the nuclear accident, and said, "To have done [the show] in Fukushima, I think, will launch your career as world-famous fashion models." He went further, saying "I've been appearing on TV and covered by other media almost every day since March 11. Thanks to this media coverage, I think I may now be the most famous head of the state, or governor, in the world."

The occasion was the modeling contest held in the outskirts of Fukushima City (of all place); this year's winner was Ms. Tan Yin Yin from Singapore.

Fukushima City is now prepping itself for the 27th Annual Ekiden Race featuring women runners from all over eastern Japan, most of them in their mid to late teens, some of them as young as 13. The race will be on November 13 in over 1 microsievert/hour radiation.

The Governor can save that title of world famous to put on his tombstone.

Beauty contests are dumb anyway. Now they're even dangerous for your health.

Yes, the Governor of Fukushima is famous because of the failures of TEPCO and the government. Making lemonade when life is giving you lemons.

May be he can do a radiation theme park - come see the people who drink contaminated water and eat cesium rice!

Ever hear of a guy called NERO? He fiddled while Rome burned...seems like a similar situation.

Ever hear of a Japanese robot that fiddled while Fukushima Daiichi exploded? Funding for radiation-hardened disaster work robots was scrapped in Japan because it was thought it would upset people, so instead money was poured into making cute robots that....
