More strange news from Japan


Why does all the strangest stuff come from Japan? First, Super Pii Pii Brothers, and now this:
A Japanese man puzzled by food mysteriously disappearing from his refrigerator got a shock when he discovered a woman had been living in his home for months without permission, police said today.
If you're wondering how someone doesn't know that another person is living in their home - for months - evidently, some this nutjob snuck into the dude's home and set up a mattress in one of his closets. (I guess it was one of those closets he didn't use very frequently.) The best part is that not only had she been doing this on and off for over a year, but:
Police suspect she might have been closet-hopping, moving from house to house.
Closet-hopping! That's pretty classic. During high school, a friend of mine made a temporary home in our pool house (without our knowledge) during one particularly cold winter, but closet-hopping - that's a new one. And what's with the Japanese newspaper in the beginning of the video for Rockwell's paean to paranoia? Was he psychic or something?:



UPDATE: Just to be fair, Rockwell is not the only paranoid hitmaker of the '80s. For your viewing pleasure:
