So, is this HDR? It looks like a pic of a model or miniaturization.
How do you do that?

It is a real village in Japan, though it has become somewhat of a tourist attraction. It is notable for having no hotels, but where residents will allow visitors to spend a night in their home.

Makes sense to me:

Drunk people suck.
No pets - the French are bad at leaving their dogs home.
No bombs.
No bombs.
Copyright.
No littering.
No taking up more space than you should.
No recording.
You're going to drop it and break it.
Duh.
Don't litter.
Don't litter.
Don't throw them at people.
I'm drawing a blank on ladders. But maybe I just don't go to enough concerts.
Helmets hide your face so you can do bad things.
Laser pointer in the eye to ruin a performance.
Duh.
No weapons. Duh.
No weapons. Duh.
Torches: see Lasers.
Megaphones: see lasers.
Power banks - probably because the cheap ones catch fire.
No weapons.
Can also be used as a weapon. Also, no pictures, so why do you need a selfie stick.
Copyright again.
No graffiti. Goddamn Italians.
No weapons. Duh.
No weapons. Duh.
I'm drawing a blank on shopping carts. But maybe I just don't go to enough concerts.
Umbrellas are probably a potential weapon, or could be used to conceal one.
Extension cords could be used as a weapon.
Hammers and screwdrivers are GREAT weapons.
I'm drawing a blank on adhesive tape. But maybe I just don't go to enough concerts.
Crowbars are the BEST weapons.
Weapons.
Weapons.
Wireless equipment is used to record the performances. Don't record the performances.
Bombs are obviously bombs.
As are Flares.
Drugs. Hooray.
Bomb rules.
No nazi swag.

I will bet a dollar that they either will not actually make the 2dr model at all or the 2dr will not be sold in the USA.
Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

Read through some of the other stuff at toonhole, and I guess it's supposed to be a joke... I just am having trouble with putting myself in the headspace of the person who thinks it's funny and topical.

It's easy, you like someone, and at some point you decide to make your move. If they like it, good. If they tell you to stop, back the fiddlesticks off, no means no, don't insist, no, there's no maybe.

Also, don't project modern day real life morality into an ancient fairy tale. But ok, yeah, don't rape unconscious people.

Another question is, why did that guy didn't tell anybody about her and left her to die?

See, now I'm doing it. Damn you internet. It's a fairy tale. Magic put her to sleep, magic sent him to kiss her and wake her up, magic made them fall in love with each other, get married, and live happily ever after. The end.

When you think about a lot of the old fairy tales they're really socially horrible. They involve things which any person with a conscience would think were inappropriate.

So the joke is that he didn't kiss her when she was asleep and that she died.

It was not a judgement that he should therefore have kissed her.
