As if it’s not bad enough that Tigger’s always getting in trouble, now Winnie the Pooh’s getting into the act! Yahoo! News reports:
Japanese police have arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people after they stared at his Winnie-the-Pooh costume, officials said on Tuesday.
Masayuki Ishikawa was hanging out on a Tokyo street corner after midnight last month while wearing the cuddly costume, accompanied by two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, when he took offence at being stared at, police said.
I would not be surprised to find a mouse in the Hundred Acre Wood, but a panther? Bit of a stretch perhaps. Or then again, one wouldn’t expect kangaroos there either.
