Weird Japanese Things

Today I went with my girlfriend into a small store that only sold products imported from Japan, and found some things worth mentioning here.

Overly-Happy Floss

These little floss-toothpicks aren't weird in and of themselves, but because of the picture on the label. See the teeth being flossed? It's weird enough that they have their own faces, but the one on the left looks a little "too" happy. Kind of makes me want to be a tooth... ;-)

Happy Virus Alarm Clock

"Happy" seems to be a popular English word used to describe things in Japan. This is an alarm clock with a picture depicting a small girl saying, "Happy Virus." I have no idea where this phrase came from or what it means, so let me know if the comments if you have any idea.
