Sumos too Fat for Phones, Given iPads

The Japanese Sumo Association has sent iPads to 51 sumo stables because the sumo wrestlers’ fingers are too fat to use regularly sized phones.

A little hilarious and a little sad, sumo wrestlers are apparently notorious for missing phone calls due to being unable to use phones efficiently because of their large fingers. The Japanese Sumo Association has bought up 60 iPads to dish out in order to help alleviate the apparently common slow communication amongst stables. Quite possibly equally hilarious and equally sad, the JSA is also sending someone along with the iPads to explain how to use them.
