Wrong On Both Counts[edit]

To begin with, a simple Google Book Search shows that of the 5 sources about Bakezōri, they all use Wikipedia as their only source. Furthermore, the first sentence comes from Monstropedia: [[1]]

Bakezōri (化け草履) is a yokai from Japanese folklore.
Bakezori is an old straw zori sandal that come to life at night. The yokai runs through the house and chants "kararin, kororin, kankororin! (Eyes three, Eyes three and teeth two!)"

and the second if a direct word for word from steal from [[2]]

In a house where footwear is treated improperly, this old zōri sandal comes to life at night and emerges from the storeroom where it has been discarded. As it runs through the house, it can be heard chanting, "kararin, kororin, kankororin! Eyes three, Eyes three and teeth two!" Perhaps it says this in honor of its kin the geta sandal, which does indeed make such sounds and does have three eyes (the holes drilled for its straps) and two teeth (the wooden platforms on its base).

In other words, not only is it uncited plagiarism, but it's not even accurate information. Duende-Poetry (talk) 20:49, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
