firefox-logo-64x64.pngIn the proud tradition of so many Things Japanese that are simultaneously cute and creepy, the Japan branch of the Mozilla Cheerleaders Society (and let’s face it, Japan is the place that gave Mozilla its -zilla) has come up with its own “official mascot” for the Firefox brand web browser. foxfire1.pngNot satisfied with the fiery foxlike thingy seemingly consuming the Earth as we know it (Hey! Let’s blame HIM for Global Warming!), those wily Japanese have given us “Foxkeh”, a cute little orange fox with a bright flame for a tail. Or is that just a bright flame coming out of his little ass?

The “Spread Firefox Japan” site (sounds like a bunch of pyromaniacs to me) have a variety of pictures of little Foxkeh (no, I don’t know how that should be pronounced and I have not yet found an English-language site that does), some cuter than others and some creepier, but probably the worst is this image identified as “Sorry”.

I believe I have the English translation of that word balloon:

One additional concern is: what if the fire goes out? Will “Foxkeh” end up looking like “Fox-se” with a rather prominant hole where the flame was? And how would you go about re-lighting it? Would the little fox have to eat a lot of beans first? Once again, too many questions, too few answers, and I can’t find Dr. Assman anywhere.
