Winnie the Pooh arrested in Tokyo

Actually it was Masayuki Ishikawa, a 20-year-old, dressed up like everyone’s favorite honey-eatin’ chubby bear.? I first heard this on NPR before I had coffee and thought it was a joke.? Nope.? His two friends were dressed up as a mouse and panther and then Ishikawa and his friends beat up the two victims and stole $160 from them. Apparantly they didn’t like being looked at.? The reason they were dressed up?? According to police, they donned the unusual garb because they had run out of clean clothes.? [Reuters]
