Babies and Sumo

This is hilarious - in Mainichi today, they had a Reuters photo showing a baby-crying contest in Sensoji Temple (Tokyo). The aim is to get the babies participating to cry as loudly as possible (the loudest is the winner) - the event is held to pray for the babies' health.

And nothing is going to get a baby to cry more loudly than taking it from it's parents and putting it in the arms of a giant Sumo wrestler.... heh heh heh, very cute!!

More snaps here.
