Vinsmoke Judge (is anyone bothered by this?)

Oda said in an interview that Judge was based on Hitler,  and at one point we see him seated beneath the statue of a bird that is clearly based on the nazi eagle icon.

or maybe the voice of an young adult, older brother  (like Sabo)

or did you hear the kind of light weight, choir-boy, sentimental voice that is depicted in the anime,

I use this to argue that the Manga is a better story medium, becuase the Merry is supposed to be a guardian ang…

The One-Liner game

Somebody started this game in a Star Wars blog a few years ago.

Take one line from the show/manga and replace one word with the word 'pants'

ROBIN:  "Franky didn't you run out of cola pants?

BROOK:  My eyes pants nearly jumped out of my skull

LUFFY:  I still have my nakama  pants
