A local resident from Minato Ward, Tokyo, has reportedly crossed his ‘t’ before downstroking it, according to eyewitness accounts.
Witnesses say Ryotaro Fujihara showed a blatant disregard for centuries of Western civilisation by ignoring the sacred stroke order of the ‘t’.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, he went horizontal before ending it on the downward stroke,” said 28-year-old eyewitness Melissa Gordon.
“I have no idea how he even managed to remember how to write it using that highly counter-intuitive stroke order.”
Fujihara is expected to forget how to write the letter ‘t’ in the coming weeks.
