More Crazy Japanese Habits

In this new trend, apparently some Japanese parents send out personalized bags of rice to celebrate the birth of a child. Each bag: 1) has a picture of the child's face; 2) weighs the same as the actual baby.

I don't know, I would feel kind of bad ripping the bag of rice open and actually eating the rice - I feel like I would be eating the baby...

ok, so if someone has an 8 lb baby, you get an 8 lb bag of rice in the mail... and the family has to PAY to send out like 50 or more 8 lb bags of rice... thats the dumbest thing I have ever heard. At least send me chocolate in an 8lb bag!
