Whoopsie Daisies: Japanese Man Dies After Coworkers Shoot Compressed Air Up His Butt

On Sunday (Dec. 17) police in Saitama arrested two men under suspicion of manslaughter after they allegedly caused the death of a male coworker by shooting compressed air up his backside.

According to police, at around noon on December 16 at an industrial waste treatment plant in the Saitama town of Sugi?o, two of the plant’s employees, a 47-year-old resident of the Saitama city of Kazo and a 36-year-old Peruvian national living in the Chiba city of Matsudo, held down one of their coworkers, a 44-year-old male named Yoshiyuki Koguchi. and then used an industrial strength air compressor to shoot air through the man’s pants and into his anus.

Following the incident Koguchi’s abdomen swelled and he began to complain of pain. Koguchi’s two coworkers took him to a nearby hospital, however, Koguchi died at 7:20 that evening.

The two suspects have explained that the three men were on a break from work at the time of the incident. Although initially they were using the air compressor to blow dirt and grime off of their work clothes, eventually they began using it to “play around.”

Look, I don’t know if this story is even real or not. Seems real. Could be real. I don’t know if it’s real. The point is that this is the kinda thing that can certainly happen.

One minute you’re changing some tires or blowing the sawdust away from your workstation and the next minute, Carl from the shop has a belly full of air. You think he’ll let out one huge howl of wind (fart) and that everyone will get a chuckle out of it. No siree. Not Carl. His belly wasn’t made for that type of air. He ends up dead. Unfortunate to say the least.

Let this be a reminder to all of you at your holiday parties (Merry Christmas, folks) that dangerous things can happen when you and your work pals partake in a little anal horseplay. The butthole, while hilarious, is the home of many vital organs. You push air up there and there’s no telling what could happen. Your pal could die. That’s not the way to start a long break. You can bet your bottom dollar on that.
