Japan April Fool Stuff

So yeah, Japanese loves 4/1. Why you ask? Well it all goes back to a legend about a piece of tofu. It was said that once upon a time there was a piece of tofu who like a to report news to everyone. However, as the invention of news vendor and newspaper came, that tofu lost their usefulness as news reporter and become nothing more than food. As that piece of tofu was drown in soy sauce and close to being eaten, instead of running away, he just keep on reporting even no one is listening to him anymore. To celebrate this tragic event, Japan has a tradition of gathering all the news and report them all at once in 4/1.

This legend also inspired many things such as how the titans in Attack on Titan eat people. In fact, this site was named Polygon because they want to have that journalist spirits the tofu once had, and the tofu shaped like a polygon.

I have no idea what I'm talking about.
