Is this accurate in any way? It seems rather 'wtf?'.

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Its pretty simple, its to identify the criminal, so when he tries to run away and blend with the crowd... oh wait - he cant. I read some comments on youtube and some of them sounded pretty ignorant.

I believe the banks here in the US also use that system with their money. Once someone tries to open a sack of money, pop, your exploded with some sort of paint, both on the money and the criminal. Instant proof.
