Little Mr. Tritium

The Japanese government recently created an animated character that definitely belongs in our ongoing series of strange spokesbeings. It was a "cute fish-like creature with rosy cheeks" that was intended to represent a radioactive hydrogen isotope. The government was hoping that this creature would help gain public support for its plan of releasing contaminated water from Fukushima into the sea.

While the government didn't give this creature a name, people have been calling it "Little Mr. Tritium".

Too late. Blinky shows us what happens when radioactive waste is released into the water and has been a "Simpsons" cast member for the last thirty years. Get with the program, guys!

Godzilla would make a much more appropriate mascot. In fact, they could put out the water for Goddy to drink before his next big fight.
