KAWASAKI — Police in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, have sent a 22-year-old university student to prosecutors after he was arrested on suspicion of throwing raw eggs at commercial facilities and onto rail tracks.

Zero tolerance for crime is fine, but this is ridiculous.

I see he wasn't hard boiled about his eggxams, but finding work was too egghausting. Then he went off the wall

What's up with these egg-based puns? Someone could have gotten hurt and that's no yolk!

Surely he could have directed his yokey bile at the diet building instead

I remember there was this one guy who used to turn off the lights of his upper floor apartmernt and throw eggs down at passing bosozoku. Sounds like fun.

Obviously this guy has nothing else better to do from his high-rise condominium than throw eggs.

These companies need to make more jobs available or they might egg on the wrong person.

And yet, he may have ended up literally driving the final nail in the coffin. It's like one of eggs he had thown outside boomeranged back to him embarrassingly getting on his face.

Now it would be rather better for him to become a novelist and such. However, it only means if he's gifted to some extent. Hopefully he'll become a good egg at least.

I see. He was eggsaspirated In looking for work. Then he got the eggrigious idea of playing a nasty yoke. His mind was that scrabbled. He thought he could not chicken out once he decided to do it. Some eggs benadic Arnold outed him and he was fried. The police informed him this was not poultry crime. But let look at the sunny side up. The punishment sound be light, and maybe this will egg him on to lead a butter life.

stressed out from continuously failing at job hunting.

Well job hunting chances are scrambled now. I understand being stressed out by something like that but take to the batting cages or the gym next time.
