Congrats to Piko Taro!

Good morning everyone,

It's looking like the typhoon will pass south of us on Monday, but we can definitely expect some strong winds and rain throughout the day on Monday and some continuing into Tuesday. Hopefully, it'll stop raining on Tuesday before I head to work...otherwise, every day is going to be hot, hazy and humid...including today.

I know that it's the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima today, but I'll leave the speeches to those who are better writers than I am. I'll stick with lighter news today.
Comedian Piko Taro, best known for his viral hit song "Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen," announced Friday he has tied the knot with model girlfriend Hitomi Yasueda.


The 44-year-old, whose real name is Kazuhito Kosaka, and the 29-year-old Yasueda filed for marriage on Thursday, he said on his blog.

The two became acquainted through work and had been seeing each other since 2013, according to his office.

"I will work even harder at home and at work," said Kosaka in a statement under another alias, Kosaka Daimao, who is purportedly Piko Taro's producer.

Kosaka, as Piko Taro, gained international popularity for his 45-second viral hit PPAP in 2016, in which he performed in a leopard-print scarf and sunglasses.

Now if only I were funny and rich...just kidding!

Congrats to you two! I hope you have a happy and fruitful marriage!

Have a great day!
