Japanese man releases hundreds of worms in train


TOKYO (AFP) — A Japanese man was arrested for releasing hundreds of beetle larvae inside a moving express train to try to scare female passengers, police said Tuesday.

"I wanted to see women get scared and shake their legs," police quoted 35-year-old Manabu Mizuta as saying.

He was arrested on the spot by a patrolling police officer after releasing the creatures on the Keihan line in Osaka prefecture.

"He would go close to women on the train, any woman, and pour out the worms from containers," said a police spokesman.

Local police had been on alert after 18 similar cases of released worms had been reported this month by the same train operator.

"When the arrest was made, the man had nearly emptied a container, which is believed to have held 200 worms," he said. "You cannot count them because there are so many."

Mizuta had 10 containers in his backpack estimated to contain a total of 3,600 worms, police said.

"We have the worms sitting inside the police station right now," the spokesman said. "You see them wriggling inside their clear cases. It's really disgusting."

Wow, I just couldn't believe my eyes. Japan is such a clean country!!

Disgusting is the right word. Funny sense of humor.

Japan has its fair share of weirdoes. At least, those knucklehead weirdoes are not a uzi-blazing numb nut. But, still, that guy was such a pathetic imbecile.

It's so funny, and make me think Japan is so peaceful. A middle aged man collecting thousands of insects in the forests only to scare women and see their reactions on the train...🙂

Yeah, I got what you meant. If you do some google search on Japanese quirky inventions (like, weird umbrella, eating utensil with some cooling fans, and what not), Japanese weirdness has a very strange twist to it.

This is just too darn funny. Man, you have to be pretty bored if you will go to these lengths just to freak out a bunch of girls with an exaggerated version of a 6-year-old boys' stunt.

ROFL, I had no idea that you couldn't count around 200 worms... that number is just TOO high I guess!

Well his quote may have gotten a little distorted through translation. But, the guy is still weird. -_-'

I knew it was some kind of fetish act before I even opened the thread! I am sure you can probably find 1,000 dvds of "japanese women getting scared by bugs" and "leg shaking fetish" videos at the local Japanese dvd stores.
