'Winnie the pooh' attacks onlookers
This has got to be one of the funniest stories I have read in a while. First of all, the images of the innocent and cuddly Winnie-the-Pooh turning violent and attacking someone is bizarre enough. The reason for the attack is because onlookers were "staring" at him. What do you expect when you are dressed up in a costume. People are bound to stare. Finally, the reason for dressing up is that they ran out of clean clothes.
Japanese police have arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people after they stared at his Winnie-the-Pooh costume.
Masayuki Ishikawa was hanging out on a Tokyo street corner after midnight last month while wearing the costume, accompanied by two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, when he took offence at being stared at, police said.
'It's uncommon to see people dressed up like this, so the victims were watching them. Then the perpetrator came up and said "What are you staring at?"' a police spokesman said.
Ishikawa and his friends beat up the two victims and stole $160 from them, the spokesman said, adding the group had apparently donned the unusual garb because they had run out of clean clothes.
From start to finish, this story is hilarious. Jokes aside, lets just hope Winnie-the-Pooh and his mouse and panther friends did not hurt the two too much and that they used the $160 to buy some new clothes.
