Animals Taunted With Food in Crazy Japanese Game Show
A clip currently circulating on YouTube shows complacent animals posing motionlessly as excited contestants stack food on or around them. In one sequence, a black dog looks mournful as his owner piles 32 strips of Spam on his nose and forehead (he gets to eat it after the stacks fall off), while in another, a monkey sits as another contestant builds a house of bananas around him, only occasionally stroking a piece of fruit with evident interest. Lucky there's no PETA in Japan!
