commentary: のんべ坊主 (drunk priest)

Hiroi Michiaki: Mm, this is a drunk priest. He’s a priest that’s drunk on sake and he’s staggering about. He’s holding an octopus, a boiled octopus, and there’s sake in his gourd. This priest, I wonder if he was in there [in the workshop]. Um, if you spin this, in any case, the priest lolls about and spins. He’s drunk.
