The blog Tokyo Times is carrying a story about a 38-year-old ex-Yakuza member who tried to persuade a father to let him date his 15-year-old daughter. No expensive presents, deep bows and pretty words for this love lost former gangster. Instead, he gave the girl's father the finger. Literally. He cut off his little finger and mailed it to the father. Naturally the father wasn't exactly pleased. After receiving the finger two times in a row he informed the police. They dutifully arrested the fingerless lover.
