When comparing the ability of countries adapting other cultures traditions, America comes in last place. The Japanese can take almost anything and blend it into their culture, making it Japanese (EX: Tempura is not japanese originally, it was inspired by Portuguese traders in japan). Americans just ride a dead horse and slap somebody's name on a product to sell it for more money. I feel bad for hookah. We should lead a revolt.
honestly ed hardy probably doesnt even know they are smacking his name on hookahs stuff, he probably has some one that runs his marketing stuff that OK'ed it and he probably wont know about until he starts to get money coming in from it
