Reuters informs us this day that the fine folks from the great nation of Japan have ventured into space with a laboratory module attached to the International Space Station. Price wise, it was no slouch either, costing the taxpayers a cool $2.4 billion, although they probably could have got a deal on today's exchange rate
Mr. Yokoyama, deputy manager of the project said it was a memorable day for Japan's human space flight program.
So what's so funny?
Simply that the Japanese module thusly attached is named "Kibo", which is slang for a portable toilet here in the midwest.
