Sorry webmaster.
This one’s only for beverages.

A vending machine in Nagoya,
Dispensed food which would truly annoy yer,
The rice was all dry,
And the Sushi smelt high,
That was positioned in the Meitetsu Hotel in the foyer.

@Pete 0409. Shiite!!

I would have been kicking the ferk out that one forever, trying to get something to eat. Although if it dispensed a good Scotch, I probably would have forgiven it.

No snack for you!

Just fyi, beverage machines in Japan serve drinks both hot & cold.
I have no clue why this idea hasn’t caught on in other countries.
Want a can o’ hot coffee or tea without waiting in line at Starsux?
Just drop a coin in and wham, cuppa joe in moments.

@Pete 0452. They do have such machines in Brissie nowadays. However I have never been game enough to use one. As you know, Cockroaches are endemic to tropical/subtropical climes. Therefore, I imagine the little buggers would be attracted like ants to a picnic. I can visualize my coffee being strained through half a million cockroaches, who have decided to immolate themselves in the infernal machine. Despite my redoubtable technical skills, such devices seem, “to have it in for me” so as to speak.. The other night at the club, I decided to sally forth to sample a Cup of Java,… Read more »

@Marum 4:22,

I have seen vending machines on the streets of Japan which sell whiskey. And beer. No I’m not kidding.*

*Although this was in the late 1980’s.
No idea if this is still done nowadays.

@Pete | 3:02 pm: Vending machine whiskey? “Aged in Okinawa, 12 days”.

That’s not a vending machine. It’s the Master’s TARDIS, disguised as one with it’s chameleon circuit.

@DnT 6:21 pm,

Uhhh….why Okinawa?

Stumped me on this one.

BTW Okinawa has a potent liquor of its own made from sugarcane.
It’s called Awamori.

It’s GOOOOOOD…..

@Pete | 8:09 am: You’re being too literal, mate! It’s a pun on “aged in oak”. 😉

An oaken awa? 🙂

Marum

An Awa is a Japanese barrel, equal to a Firkin.

So if someone asks: “How’s ya Firkin?”

You can reply either: “One tenth of a Hogshead, or half a Kilderkin.”

Aha. “Oak in Awa”.
Got it.

@Marum 5:57, It took me a while to wonder why you were worried about cockroaches. Then I realized you were talking about a machine where the coffee is actually filtered there in front of you. (At least I THINK that’s what you meant.) No, Japanese hot/cold drink vending machines have the coffee or tea pre-canned. If roaches get into the beverage, that has to happen at the factory, not inside the machine. Those cans are sealed up tight until you the paying consumer is ready to open it and drink. And the Japanese are pretty persnickety about consumer product quality.… Read more »
