Tokyo’s Oldest Man? Not Really, Dude’s Dead 30 Years [Amazing.]

So, this shit is gold.

Boing Boing:

Sogen Kato was believed to be the oldest man in Tokyo. Officials heading out to congratulate him on his 111th birthday, however, met not an ancient gent but a corpse, mummified in his own bed for perhaps 30 years.

You can’t make this shit up. Oh world, you are so fantastical. You have to imagine the bummer it is to waste a perfectly good cake, you know? I don’t know about the economy over in Japan, but I mean, eggs ain’t cheap, yo.
