winnie the pooh goes psycho

POLICE in Japan have quizzed a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people who he thought were staring at his Winnie-the-Pooh costume, it has been revealed.

In the incident around midnight in Tokyo last month, Masayuki Ishikawa, who was dressed as Winnie the Pooh, with two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, took offence at being stared at, police reported.

“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.

Police added that Ishikawa and his friends beat up the two victims before stealing $160 from them.

The spokesman added that the group had donned the unusual outfits when
they ran out of clean clothes. Link
And my mother rags on me when I wear my wedding dress on laundry day….sigh.

No word on whether the "mouse" was DangerMouse or MightyMouse or MickeyMouse or the mouse from the "If You Could Give A Mouse A Cookie" book.

Must've been the mouse from Chuck-E-Cheese.

Anyplace that advertises "where a kid can be a kid" HAS to be bi-polar, and lookin' for a fight...!

LOL! I must be really old. I remember when Chuck E. Cheese was called "Showbiz" and he was just one of the characters. Seems he broke out on his own!

Aw, HELL! That's right!

Naw, you ain't old---YET!---I'm just forgetful!

Man, what a life. Went from bein' CHEESY, to just plain SLEAZY...!
