    why so serious?

  2. PermaGuestII says:

    Having a USMC grenade shipped to a Japanese bank = priceless.

  3. Y. Hamanaka says:

    Dude, this is Japan, not 'Nam. There are rules to follow or you lose face.

    And money.

  4. guy who knows says:

    For those wondering, the administrative response to novelty dog poo is similar.

  5. guest says:

    Evacuating the entire building because of a novelty grenade in a box seem like gross a overreaction.

    There surely had to be a more levelheaded way of handling that situation.

    I would guess that this wasn't the first time a novelty grenade had been shipped to an office building.

  6. I seen 'em says:

    Plenty of grenades available in WFC area. Just go to Moran's around happy hour.

    "Fake grenade"? So a fat, ugly chick with huge knockers was sent over?

  10. Gundlach says:

    Totally inappropriate item for the office.

    This gets filed under jappy bank / wacky sense of humor.

    YOU BWING DISHONAH ON FAMIWIY!!!!

    What's with all the commotions?

    Nomura's trading book blows up periodically. This is just nothing.

    Security Scanner: Bowling ball candle…that's fine. Hairdryer with a scope on it…that's fine. Just don't want to hold up the line…

    Could've been worse. He could've ordered "Jump to Conclusions"

  16. Guest says:
