Kanazawa, Japan: Two men were arrested for “public indecency” for sitting naked in a Gyōza no Ōshō (King of Dumplings) restaurant. The men were from a nearby massage-parlor/sex shop and were apparently at the dumpling house to shoot an add for their business. Somehow they thought it was a good idea to do this during business hours when customers were around, cell-phone photos of the incident are circulating on the internet.
