Japanese people are more proud of Sony than Nintendo

Kind of like how my parents are more proud of my brother...

I'm actually shocked either made it so high. Japanese firm Risk Monster took a survey of 1,000 (employed) men and women between 20 and 69 (hehehe) years old to see which Japanese companies its citizenry was most proud of.

Sony placed second, sandwiched between Toyota and Honda, $1.3 billion losses be damned. Honda is better than Toyota and Nissan is better than all three. Come on, Japan.

Nintendo placed seventh, right above Hitachi, makers of the world's best vibrator, the Hitachi Magic Wand. It is frequently described as "the Cadillac of vibrators," but we really need to stop using that cliche, because Cadillacs kind of suck. Until we get a better alternative, I'll stick in a holding pattern and go with "the Citizen Kane of vibrators."

  1. Toyota - 64.5%
  2. Sony - 40.6%
  3. Honda - 40.5%
  4. Panasonic - 36.6%
  5. Nissan - 31.1%
  6. Canon - 29.0%
  7. Nintendo - 26.5%
  8. Hitachi - 26.4%
  9. Bridgestone -26.2%
  10. Toshiba - 25.8%
  11. Sharp - 23.3%
  12. ANA - 22.4%
  13. Yamato - 21.4%
  14. Yamaha - 21.3%
  15. Fujitsu - 21.2%
  16. Mitsubishi - 20.8%
  17. Suntory - 20.6%
  18. Japan Airlines - 19.6%
  19. Ajinomoto - 19.1%
  20. TOTO - 19.1%
