Last CallLast CallLast Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and use the comment section as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.

I have watched every single clip from a Japanese prank TV show. Every single last one. This is what your humble Takeout editor does when he returns home at night after dinner and a shower: He wastes his time on YouTube and Dailymotion watching those sadistic Japanese mf’ers give each other PTSD. It’s a testament to how less litigious Japan is as a society, which makes these following clips so awful and beautiful.


Have a great weekend, everyone, and we’ll see you on Monday as The Takeout presents: Old Folks Food Week! [Kevin Pang]

Kevin Pang was the founding editor of The Takeout, and director of the documentary For Grace.
