(1128) Yankee Doodle Dandy

For some reason that, if I'm not mistaken, has to do with the American Occupation, this way of sitting is called "yankee" (ヤンキー); the word also means "juvenile delinquent". And it's particularly funny considering that it's a very natural way of sitting for the Japanese, even in these shoes.
