A Japanese company called Tenga, which makes a line of "masturbation toys," has declared tomorrow National Hand Job Day. The reason is an elaborate pun on tomorrow's date, 7/21. Kotaku explains

 

 “Masturbation” in Japanese is “onanii” (オナニー), which is a pun on 07.21 (“o” for “zero”; “na” for “seven” or “nana” in Japanese; “ni” means “two” in Japanese; and here, they’re making a pun on the long vowel mark “ー” by saying it refers to “一” or “ichi,” which means “one.”) So, “Jerk Off Day” is probably more accurate.

Tenga created a Power Rangers-esque "Masturbation Hero," Tengaman, for the occasion. They also shot an absurd, action movie-style trailer to promote their new holiday.

This is pretty strange, but Japan is known for having mascots for all sorts of weird stuff. We wish you all a happy Hand Job Day.
