Gruesome news from Japan, reported by Fark with the classic headline “Taxi driver unzips his pants and finds a mummified homeless man”:
The partially mummified body of an elderly man was found in shrubbery beside a big department store in the teeming Japanese city of Osaka after going unnoticed for nearly two months, police said Friday.
More than one million people a day pass by the small bed of trees and bushes outside the nine-story Hankyu Department Store, just across the street from the central railway station in the country’s second-largest city.
I’m pretty sure that I know the place they’re talking about. I’m surprised that no one noticed it for such a long time. One thing that doesn’t surprise me, on the other hand, is that it was discovered by some guy taking a leak al fresco.
