Doing a little shopping in Sapporo and came across this:


Also found nice selection of ukes, including some Yamahas I've never seen in the U.S.

Wow. And looks like five for $5.88.

You should second mortgage the house, buy a barn full of them, and be the North American distributor for ukulele egg slicers! Sell them for, like, two for $5.88. You'd make a killing, lancemanion.

You could lord over them since you have them all. "You wanna ukulele egg slicer? Is that what I'm hearing? Well, lets just say dinner's on you--what's the ritziest joint in Bentonville, AR, anyhow?--and you treat me like one of the family and I'll see if I can't come up with a few for you, Sam Walton, Jr. Capice?"

One caution: you'd have to act quickly before this currently fading wave of uke popularity goes completely in the crapper because the plastic recycler would give you a nickel per dozen for them. The next ukulele wave isn't due until around 2099, and something tells me your grandkids aren't gonna want to frig with these things.

Probably advisable to play that with a pick. And a slide.
