punch out

Assault or cultural misunderstanding? A Japanese man was arrested in the Philippines for punching a Filipina lawyer - Maria Esperanza Christina Garcia-Codilla (daughter of Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia). She claims that Tanaka punched her in the back after telling her that she should not have placed her pushcart in front of the luggage carousel at Manila Airport. Tanaka claims that he never punched her and that it was a traditional Japanese "nudge" to get her attention. Here's the story on a Japanese news show. Love the kooky cartoon explaining the incident!
