Man Dead On Futon For Nearly 10 Years Before Family Notices Father Found Lying Dead On Futon March 9, 2005

TOKYO -- A Japanese man and his two sisters were worried something might be wrong with dad. And they were right.

The old man had been dead for nearly a decade. Police questioned the three elderly siblings Tuesday, after the decomposing body of their father was found lying on a futon bed in the family's home.

Police said the man's children thought he was still alive, but became worried lately and consulted a relative. Police said judging by the condition of the remains, the father could have died as long as 10 years ago.

With the beginning of feminism in Japan, came the death of dad. Feminazis will find that to be hilarious! ...their favorite symbolism.

Elderly Jewish man calls his doctor.

"Doc, I think my wife is dead."

"You think she's dead? What do you mean 'you think she's dead?'"

Well, the sex is the same, but the dishes are starting to pile up.

Do a search using this headline and see how many times it's been posted.

And, are you sure he's still dead? This is the Internet, after all.

LOL. One never knows for sure on the Net. However, I did a search, because I remember reading it before. I used the keyword "dead." I thought that is what we are supposed to do, after we search the exact title first. The keyword "dead" is what brought up yesterday's two prior posts.

That's a good way to look up a story, but when posting a story I usually put the complete headline in the search box and search by title (score) which will show any threads with similar headlines. Obviously, some slip by.

God, I'm starting to sound like one of the Forum Lecturers here now and that is scaring me more than I could have imagined.

Hehe. I do both, even when posting a "new" story. (The execption, I think is when there is a new twist to an old story...then I guess one is fairly safe.) However,because different papers often change the headlines, and because some people new to the FR make up their own headlines I try to avoid duplication. I messed up in the beginning, and learned that the hard way. LOL. So now I check by 1)Exact headline, 2)keywords. It saves me embarassment. Most of the time.
