I guess they should be looking at the employees, then?

Just a hunch but maybe the case was 'accidentally left open' and someone went to town on the merch

Judging by the value, it must be a joke, or a stunt, or someone who extremely board and has nothing else to do.

I've been to Inashiki. It's not exactly the most exciting place in Japan. This definitely counts as big news, at least for them.

If aliens were ever to visit and see that printed anywhere they'd probably want to have a word with the dolphins instead of us.

If those aliens were fans of Vogon poetry, they might feel right at home.

Haha! Spot on. Japanese advertising slogans are right up there with the best work of the Vogons.

@blvtzpk, was there a question in there somewhere? :-)

But that made me think about the 34 knives. Should we ask ourselves what question would produce 34 knives as an answer?

Sorry. It seems lockdown is getting to me. Not so much that I can't go out, but that the rest of the household doesn't go out.

Yep, welcome to Japan. But still some local pundits here will tell you that Japan is rife with crime and not safer any any other country.

WHY take (Steal) what is not yours ??? Work for the things that you want. A person is such a SMALL person inside when they steal. I personally do not like people that steal, They just can't be trusted, and they may just steal from family & friends.

Yes, only small people steal other belongings. But most important, what does this person want to use the knives for ???.
