Pikachu Street Rats?

“The rats of center-gai street, in Tokyo’s Shibuya ward got the nickname ‘super rats’ because of their alleged immunity to human-made poison. They’re a real nuisance and aren’t afraid to come out of their hiding places even when people are walking by. Apparently there are thousands of giant rats lurking around the place, and this got the six members of Chim Pom about the famous anime character Pikachu, from the hit series Pokemon. They decided to catch some of these super street rats and turn them into real-life versions of the yellow, electrically-charged cartoon rat.” w/ photos

Thieves Try To Steal Ronald Reagan Statue

A failed thief tried to steal a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan from a park in California, leaving the American president hanging halfway. In Bonita Canyon Sports Park, where the statue of the former president had only been up for a month, locals witnessed the leaning statue in the early morning. It was reported that the thieves tied rope around the statue with the intention of driving away with it, but the pick-up truck and a second vehicle said to have been used did not work. ‘This is a sad and pathetic example of vandalism,’ said Newport Beach City Councilman Keith Curry. ‘Whether by thieves or the intolerant criminal left, the matter will be investigated and we will prosecute to the full extent of the law.’ There had been much controversy surrounding the construction of the statue, as may protested against its creation and positioning within the park.” w/ photo
