    A buck and change a day [in Japanese prison] seems reasonable enough to me but given that the average Yakker income is something like 45% below average, maybe he found he was having similar issues with his cash flow [and turned himself in]?

  2. Jail can be quite a good social security system for Yaks. Seriously, Mukka looks like he is suffering from dementia.
