Give Pixiu a Butthole

February 4, 2020

Happy (belated) Lunar New Year! Celebrate by taking a look at some of the spoop behind Chinese and Okinawan Lunar New Year tradition, like the demons who are defeated by fireworks, good luck foods to eat, and ways to usher in prosperity. Then meet Bai Ze, the monster version of wikipedia, and some of the 11,520 mythological beasts Bai Ze warned us about.
