ALL THE NEWS THAT’S (UN)FIT TO PRINT. We were a bit perplexed the other day – even more so than on a normal day… you see, one of our fellow Belly Achers came into the office singing. It was a bit out of the ordinary even for him and it has to be said, he’s really not very good at it, but we could make out that he was singing a song by 1970’s British rock band, Queen.

After much probing as to what exactly was going on in our dear colleagues demented head, we were directed to an online news report about an even more demented man in Japan.
The man in question, a 35-yearold Yokohama resident named Joji Kondo, was arrested in August after a security camera caught him committing an early morning robbery of three bicycle seats from a neighbourhood apartment complex.
After authorities raided Kondo’s house, they found another 200 seats, all of which had an estimated total value of over a million yen (almost US$10,000). Police reports and Japanese media suggested that Kondo may have been stealing bicycle seats since January 2012.
