Three Pulitzers, No Oscars

Proving that even the best journalists in America cant resist the urge to make lame Lost in Translation jokes whenever the topic of Japan comes up, Thomas Friedman is in Tokyo, and he has this to say:

As I lie awake in my Tokyo hotel, jet-lagged out of my mind and having my Bill Murray “Lost in Translation” moment, I am clicking back and forth between CNBC and CNN on the television.

I really hope Friedman isnt trying to tell us that he spent the whole trip sitting around in his underwear regretting that he married Giovanni Ribisi. Although I would pay a lot of money to see Tom do a karaoke rendition of More Than This.
UPDATE: Bad day for TLF: hes also gotten the McSweeneys treatment. But why no jokes about his strained metaphors?
