"A Japanese man who stabbed his father to death with a chopstick was arrested on Thursday (Jun 16), police said.
Michikazu Ikeuchi, 51, admitted that he stabbed his 80-year-old father in the throat with a 30cm-long wooden cooking chopstick on Wednesday night after a quarrel at their home in Osaka, western Japan, according to police.
`Ikeuchi told us he had tried to stop his parents from arguing and he did not intend to kill his father,` an Osaka police official said.
`He said in his anger he waved the chopstick in front of his father but before he knew it, it got stuck in him,` the officer said."

If this peculiar murder had occurred in New York City instead of Osaka, Democratic senators would be engaged in a filibuster to ban the sale of chopsticks.
I like the murderer`s explanation: I waved the chopstick in front of my dad, and before I knew it, it got stuck in him. As if the chopstick had a mind of its own, and for no discernible reason killed his poor old dad.
I hope a jailbird sexual predator uses the same justification : I didn`t mean to rape Ikeuchi, I was just waving my manhood in front of him, and before I knew it my Johnson was drilling him.
What the hell was a 51-year old man doing living with his parents, in any culture that`s just wrong. Rot in prison loser!
