Porn stash believed to have crushed Japanese man to death


And even more tragically, the man's body was only discovered six months later when the landlord entered the flat to find out why the rent had not been paid.

The man's lowly death was revealed by a member of the cleaning team, who said his company had been hired to remove the magazines discreetly in a way that would not be noticed by neighbours and the man's family to save them from the shame.

It was unclear if he had suffered a heart attack and fallen into the stacks of magazines which had then fallen on top of him, or whether he had been crushed by the mass of paper.

But the cleaner said that if he was still conscious, the paper would probably have muffled his cries.

If women kill me I don't mind dying, as the old blues song put it. If he couldn't touch 'em he sure did a lot of looking.

It's a trap!

This story reminded me of a tv show titled... 'a thousand way to die' or something like that.

Lem said...

I thought it was comical that the landlord waited 3 months to inquire about his rent?

Not where I live, I can assure you.

He was walking by a large stack of dirty magazines, when his, you know what, hit the stack and it came crashing down on him, and, well, the rest is history.

Hollywood to make sympathetic documentary... soon.

Leland said...

Lem, reread the story; it was 6 months! And he was the first to even miss the guy.

If he'd waited for the Internet, he'd be alive.

AllenS said...

Good point, edutcher.

Well, you can either be buried under porn or live in a whorehouse. Toulouse Lautrec chose the latter. Seriesly.

Could this be a cautionary example of why Freud was so big on sublimation?

Lem said...

he should have been blind by then. Maybe that's why he.. tripped the way AllenS imagined. He was going blind.

One of the untalked of benefits of the internet is that you no longer have to hide the porn from wife and children (and girlfriends when they're away for the summer).. Always difficult when the stash becomes larger than a footlocker, and you have to put back issues of Fortune on the top layer. This is especially embarrassing if you've got some offbeat fetishes, like women is business suits in Fortune.

I hope you're not serious because that would make me sad.

deborah said...

You know it's not true...I just hate how clever you are ;)

I MEAN that I'm not as clever as you!
