Wikipedia is too slow from China.

Anyway, there's a chain of bakeries here called Free Mori, which I assume are Japanese. Mori means forest, yes? So what's the Free about?

"Contrary to popular speculation, Mori is not a Japanese political dissident or dolphin in need of freeing. The name Free Mori is Fuli Senlin (????) in Chinese, and is composed of fuli , a transliteration of the English word “free” and meaning “buoyancy” in Chinese, and senlin, which means "forest," the first character of which is pronounced mori in Japanese."

Thanks. But what the hell does Free Forest mean? Is it a front for an illegal logging company?

Damian Mori is a striker for Perth Glory. Didn't know he had been captured though.
