Winnie The Pooh Robs Tourist

We’ll kick your butts!These are troubling times. No, not for me but for child actors and cartoon characters the world over.

The latest episode has Winnie the Pooh robbing some tourists in Tokyo. No doubt it’s probably to feed his methamphetamine habit. You can read all about it here.

TOKYO (Reuters) – 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.

Interesting. Although Winnie the Pooh was fingered for the crime, no mention of the identities of his accomplices. Here’s a guess…how about Mickey Mouse and the Pink Panther?

Ishikawa and his friends beat up the two victims and stole $160 (84 pounds) from them, the spokesman said, adding the group had apparently donned the unusual garb because they had run out of clean clothes.

In all fairness, I shouldn’t judge. My old man has a Bugs Bunny outfit he wears when he runs out of clean clothes.
