The Crying Game.
The Japanese proverb Naku ko wa sodatsu
says that "A crying child thrives." During the annual Konaki Sumo
("Crying Sumo") festival held at certain temples
in Japan, babies are held facing each other and encouraged to cry
by priests and sumo wrestlers. The one who bawls first, or loudest, is the winner, thought to be blessed by the gods with good health.
