Bing Haubrich has made new friends in Japan, but they want to keep him there. In fact, they have threatened to hold him for ransom unless his American friends and family do two things:

1. Answer questions about Japan/Nippon culture and cuisine.

2. Donate money to help his mother pay the plane fare for his trip.

It’s tempting for a young man to stay in Japan, because so far he has found the food to be awesome and the shopping (even in vending machines) to be, let’s say, “unique.” In fact, the Japanese students think that if he stays long enough he could use his ninja powers to be Emperor someday.

So, here is one of the questions that they want you to answer:

15. In World War I, the Japanese:

b. Joined the Allies.
c. Maintained a strict neutrality.
d. Considered it a European War.

Do you know the answer?  Quick!  Get over to Tangled Up In Blue Guy, and help bring Bing back!
