This is what Koizumi REALLY went to Yasukuni Shrine for.

What’s holier than God? Poop, of course. The Japanese really, really worship poop. So much so that this golden poop–which sits on a custom royal red cushion and is protected by a screen of good fortune–is sold at shrines all over the country. Its cell phone strap counterpart has sold over 2.7 million units. I shit you not!
