All right, besides high tech vibrators revolutionising the world, what the hell is going on in Japan?!

Someone, or some people, are getting way too happy and or way too crazy!

A few weeks after we reported the mysterious appearance of envelopes containing hundreds of dollars in men’s toilets across Japan, more startling news has reached us about Japan’s weird money mystery.

Media reports:

On Saturday residents in an apartment building in Tokyo have received a total of 1.81 million yen or $US15,210, with unmarked enveloped delivered to 18 letterboxes.

On Wednesday an envelope with one million yen was left in the mailbox of a 31-year-old woman in the western city of Kobe, and that same day, bills worth 960,000 yen were inexplicably seen “falling” in front of a convenience store.

So what the hell is going on in Japan?

Is one sole person responsible for these weird and random acts of ‘charity’?

Or are there various copy cat money givers?

And how do I get free money?

What the hell is going on?

So many questions, so few answers.

  2. What’s the big deal? Just the other day a guy in the Men’s toilet offered me 50 bucks to….

    Um, never mind.

  3. Gee 50!
    I was only offered 40…
