It is amazing how Japanese television seems always seems to be pushing the limits of quality entertainment. The video in this post is an example of a batsu game, which is a type of Japanese comedy where people get punished for not following some kind of rule. In this case, the game is about situations where people are supposed to be serious, and thus are not supposed to laugh. The scenario of this episode is a classroom, and of course, learning is not supposed to be fun, hence, any student who smiles, grins or shows some kind of happy expression is punished with a traditional Shinai hit.
