Shonen Knife

I’m not a big one for japanese pop music, or even japanese-​american pop music, or even pop music. but i’ll make an exception for this song by Shonen Knife. It is called Jakalope. I find no end of interest in the fact that a some middle-​aged japanese women were so fascinated with an animal that lives in the mythology of rednecked tooth-​deficient outdoorsy ignoramuses from the plain states and big sky country that they wrote a song about it.
