Do you remember this mystery constellation? It was twinkling at me from the ceiling of my local department store that plays fake organ music at random intervals. (See here).
Well, fortunately, I now know that this man is not clubbing a monkey to death. He is Orion, the hunter. And he is clubbing a lion to death (which, er, makes it so much better!) Thanks to Catherine Harris for solving the mystery!

Yeah, that makes things so much better. How does one say ‘what the fluffer-nutters’ in Japanese? ‘Cause I want to say it.
Haha I haven’t heard “what the fluffer-nutters” before….and definitely no idea of the equivalent in Japanese (probably no equivalent, it’d be something like “Maybe I am mistaken in my understanding for I am surprised by this idea.”)
