He is funny ,man. Why he is funny ? Because he say he is funny man. You want to know how funny he is. But I must tell you not-funny story.
He was always there. Almost all people dont pay attention to him. Because he seem to be homeless.
Boad says that “I have misterious pure mind and voice and toungue. So I can lure you into funny mood. If I’m given LITTLE money by you, you maybe can make funny memory. The man who bring funny thing to this town is Me. Yes, I am Funny man.”
Of course he don’t seem to have such misterious power. I asked him, “What is your performance ? How can you make me funny ? Are you really funny ? What will you do if you are not funny ?” and he answer, “Could you please give me little money ? and I can make you funny feeling.” “Are you sure ?” and he kept grining.” and I said, “OK, I pay little money.” and I throw little money into his collecting box. and I demand him that funny man performance.
He said. “Now, I start to make you funny feeling by my misterios power. Could you please ask me anything ?” “Pardon ?” “Let’s talk something to become funny mood.” “I paid you. and do I also need to talk to you to get funny mood sir ?” and he said. “Yes, please.” “But I have nothing to talk to you.” “Anything is OK. please talk to me, please.” “hahaha, what’s a stupid thing.” “hahaha, don’t you feel funny ?”
I was not funny. I think his performance dont deserve my payment. But it’s stupid to get angry for such stupid thing. or I feel pitty for him. He maybe homeless. Because every night, he was there after shutter closed.
or before shutter closed, he was there. He was always waiting for the shutter closed.
Who keep staying there if he has home. maybe he is homeless.
I never ask him wheather he is homeless or not. But one day he told me he is homeless.
When I passed by, he stop me and start to talk about yesterday’s typhoon. “Hey, you are cameraman, right ? Why dont you come to here yesterday night ?” “Because Yesterday is typhoon !” “Yes, this is the reason you should come here ! It was really exiting ! From there to here, water is flowing over. manhall was flying away ! You could take a great photo ! If you are cameraman, you should come. ” “But in such flood situatin, did you stayed here ?” “Oh, yes. because you know I am homeless.”
That day, I paid lots of money even though he didnt make me funny feeling again.
Winter come, and he sometime changed place for staying.
He said “Because this place is more warm.”
Even if he change the place, lots of people still dont pay attention him.
Tokyo’s winter is really cold, especially for homeless people. he bind news paper arond his leg to keep heat.
25 December night, he stop me and said. “Merry christmas !, Thank you for your payment always. Today is christmas, so today, I give you present !” “Dont care of my payment. you should spend money for yourself !” “But christmas is special day. today I give you present. and he give me bible.” That bible seem to be given by volunteer chiristians. “Thank you very much ! Have a good day !!” I said. this time he didnt make me funny feeling again. or I feel sad for him.
And one day, he dissapeared. That night was really cold night. Until that day, he always stayed there, and I always could see him there. but from that day, I cannot see him at there.
Winter finish, and spring come, but he never come back there. I hope he can find out home, and then he can make me funny feeling.
He must find out home. because he is funny man.
