It's not what you think...

It's not often you'll find me posting a picture of a girl playing with herself at work, but here you go:

Human Tetris II

I love Japanese TV. How else would you see something like this?



And because bikinis make everything better:



Clearly, they've missed the opportunity to rename that game more appropriately given its participants...

God bless the Japanese again. This has nothing to do with Tetris, but you gotta love a country that has a game show with this as its goal:
