Now That’s a Lineup We’d Like to See

Just in case you wondering what might be the one thing more humiliating than being beat up by a girl, police in Japan are reporting that they have have arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people for staring at the full-body Winnie-the-Pooh costume he just happened to be wearing.

Officials have reported that the man, Masayuki Ishikawa, was lingering on a street corner after midnight recently with two friends, who were dressed as—naturally—a mouse and a panther, when he noticed two people looking at him. “It’s uncommon to see people dressed up like this,” the police explained, “so the victims were watching them.” The costumed men then approached the onlookers, asked them what they were staring at, and proceeded to beat the crap out of them, stealing $160 dollars while they were at it.

A spokesman for the police has explained that “the group had apparently donned the unusual garb because they had run out of clean clothes.”

When reached for comment, legal pundits worldwide have noted that…well, nothing. They’re still speechless, too.  [Reuters]
