Holy shit, this is awesome. Clearly suffering a distinct lack of dialing wands, sumo wrestlers in Japan have been given iPads by the Japan Sumo Association to alleviate their frustration at the tiny-fingered world of mobile devices. Many sumo wrestlers (who can be as big as 600 pounds) have long suffered the indignities of mashing their giant fingers into cell phone pads, only to be told to "please hang up and try your call again" in Japanese. Let the sumo texting craze of 2010 begin.
