    So as a company you share your name with the Asian Chernobyl. Now you could adopt the Sellafield approach and just rename the town and surrounding area or you could create a cute mascot.

    Introducing Fukuppy....



    Surely someone knew enough english to stop them announcing this before it arrived. It ranks with the City University of Newcastle upon Tyne in crap rebranding exercises (and while Northumbria university deny it I do have the press release that didn't go out and the mock letterhead).

    I think its Foo Kin Clever
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
