Do you like this story?
Thanks go out to reader Terri for sending this one in. You'd expect me to say that my wife would not allow this table into the home because it's a sculpture of a near-nude Sumo wrestler.
In reality, I don't want it because the tabletop is glass and that makes me nervous.

"Basho, The Sumo Wrestler" Glass-Topped Table
Not enough butt crack in your home? My uncle thought we could use some more! As a tribute to the two years my husband and I lived in Japan, our thoughtful uncle purchased this table for us and presented it to me at my bridal shower.
Obviously, this guy is too awesome for our humble apartment, so we're passing the love on to anyone who can give Basho a home.
Be the envy of your neighbourhood! This table exudes class and elegance.
*note* He has also been given the nickname "Dawn" for those who wish to eat their breakfast/drink their coffee at the crack of dawn.

Here's a description from Skymall:
"Basho crouches in his mawashi (Sumo belt) in these intricate sculpts with wide stances.
Our table is topped with a 3/8"-thick, pencil-edged, 27" dia. tempered glass top for views from any angle.
This Toscano-exclusive heavyweight is cast in quality designer resin for display in home or garden.
