Ugly Cry: Watch Japanese Assemblyman Lose It


The guy above sounds like the goats who yell like humans (below).

This unhinged man-baby is Japanese assemblyman Ryutaro Nonomura. He’s in hot water for spending the equivalent of $30K, without any receipts … he says it was spent on 195 trips to hot springs resorts. The public’s not buying it. So a three hour hearing took place. And endless, hilarious sobbing and fist-pounding ensued. But is it the best cry ever?
