May I have $5?

(Japan) The world's oldest living person, Yone Minagawa, has died at age 114. She was as sprightly as ever until her last moments, noted her carer on Tuesday.

Minagawa, who enjoyed a nice meal, and a nip of alcohol, passed Monday at a nursing home in Japan's south western Fukuoka prefecture.

"We had such great times together the past couple years. She loved to play games," said her nursemaid. "Every time I'd walk into her room she'd say 'who are you?' then start screaming 'STRANGER STRANGER STRANGER!'. I would beat her about the head to try to calm her down, but ultimately I would have to leave the room for her to settle down..... *sigh* Good Times."

Known for fondness of drink, Minagawa would often sneak into the rooms of fellow residents and steal their dentures to hock for a bit of Merlot.

"Tuname, my roommate, has Alzheimer's. So I just tell her that I'm her sister and that I need 5 dollars for food. On good days, I can do this every 20 minutes… sometimes I make enough to afford Champaign instead of wine." Said Minagawa during and interview for Remember When Magazine.

Coroners said that an autopsy was not possible as Minagawa had turned to dust approximately 3 days before dying.
