Chubb-handed sumo wrestlers are being given iPads to use as mobile phones.
The larger than life, hand-slapping nappy wearers struggle with conventional phones, and thus, need something a little more becoming to their size, according to the BBC. This apparently, is the iPad.
The Japan Sumo Association will hand out 60 iPads which it expects to be shared fairly between the country's 51 sumo stables. How they are shared out remains to be seen, but Sneak imagines it will involve standing in a circle and pushing the bejezus out of each other.
The JSA is keen to make sure that wrestlers can make phone calls because it finds it pretty hard to get hold of any of them, or their superiors. When incidents of illegal gambling were uncovered it struggled to investigate them - presumably because everytime it phoned someone it spent most of the call talking to a fat ham, as opposed to a cauliflower ear.
"We will hand out the newest iPads to all the sumo stables to swiftly communicate what we need to," JSA vice chairman Hiroyoshi Murayama said to the Beeb.
Daily paper Nikkan Sports added, "When they try to send e-mail on mobile phones or PCs they often end up pressing two or three keys at once."
