R.I.P. Anpanman

February 26th, 2008

I was stunned to come across the scene of a crime involving a celebrity while jogging. This is a small fishing island. We don’t usually get such big stars around here. We certainly don’t usually get them dead on the rocky shores of a hard to access beach. I’m thinking professional hit job, my fellow island ALT Will, or a rough encounter with a devious pastry-like baked femme fatale. Any other speculation? My high school kids are going to be distraught when they see this on the news (or I tell them). Then again, maybe they’ll just laugh. You never know. Grief is sometimes expressed in strange ways.

    Too bad I’m doing nothing here at work. I could go watch the show and figure out why Anpanman lies dead at the bottom of a cliff wall on the back road near a scenic vista gazebo. I mean…I really want to know.

    he appears to have been suffocated with a bag. Sad. I guess his super power of letting people EAT HIS HEAD didn’t come in useful. Shocking that.

    It is pretty sad, Aileen. Let’s hope it was his stunt double.

    Hey, I was the former ALT on Hakata Island. Looks like you are having fun, eh? Hope everything is going well…
