PM of Japan is “Cool old dude” ?


I snapped this picture in Akihabara yesterday. The guy in the cartoon is Japan’s Prime Minister, Mr. Aso, with a huge grin, saying “I love Akiba”. While I don’t doubt his liking Akihabara – it is one of the hustling parts of Tokyo’s economy and pretty popular with tourists I believe – it is the first time I see anyone call the guy “cool”. Now, I have heard the “old dude” title pretty often but by itself that seems to imply the opposite of “cool”…
