Green birds

May 30, is Gomi Zero no Hi (which translates as Zero Rubbish Day – or, in the way that Japanese love to play with the pronunciation of numbers, Go Mi Zero, which is 5 3 0 or 5/30). Good to have zero tolerance of litter and promote the idea of cleaning up.

But as for the green bird character from the Green Bird NPO which promotes the event: I just can't make up my mind whether the male (I assume) bird with a dangly protuberance, and the female with a matching concave bit, are "cute" or further gender-enforcing icons along these lines! (I also can't make up my mind as to whether I need to make up my mind!)
