Did dad have a history of pulling practical jokes?

Three Singaporean chaps had to be rescued from a snowy Japanese mountain this week. When retrieved by the Japanese authorities, one of the men claimed that his father had told him to seek out a legendary karate teacher on the mountainside.

"Japan looked so small on the world map that we thought we would be able to find him straight away," one of the group, aged between 25 and 50, was quoted as saying.

Another fellow who needs to brush up on his geography. Not to mention his gullibility, come to think of it.
