IMHO Installment #79: The Japanese Are Confounding

30 Jul 2007

From a Yahoo! news story :

On Wednesday, bills worth 960,000 yen were inexplicably seen "falling" in front of a convenience store.
"We can just say the money came from the skies," a puzzled police official said. "There were other passers-by outside and customers in the store but the incident caused no confusion," he said. "People thought it was too eerie to touch."

What in the hell is wrong with the Japanese? It rains MF-ing cash and they simply ignore it???? Don't they know you're supposed to completely freak out when this happens? You're supposed to run around grabbing every bill you can, stuffing them into your underwear with wreckless abandon; you're supposed to climb onto cars oblivious to any damage you might cause them, knock over old ladies as though you're a line-backer for the Chicago Bears, and generally enter that whole free-for-all state of mind, that rare mass-hysterical zenified state that only ever comes just after World Cup matches, Mardi Gras parades, coups d'A©tat, and good old fashioned urban riots!

(Damn, I hate it when it rains money and I'm not there!)

Too eerie to touch, like cursed money? Cursed or not, I would have been there grabbing it all and sticking it in a huge pillow case!
