New year rice cakes kill several in Japan

About sacrificed old men of traditional food in Japanese New Year holidays, Guardian reported it. The Japanese rice cake,Mochi is very sticky food.

Washington Examiner

“A food that regularly kills would not seem to be the most auspicious thing to serve the in-laws at New Year (or would it?) but year after year, with the belief that traditional meals conduce to good fortune, millions of brave Japanese sit down to hot bowls of soup with mochi.”

brave Japanese… lol.

It’s surely reckless for old men.
