Important Warning from Monkeyboy

MiDC recently got this in an e-mail. We thought it was important to share:

Subject: Police warning- please pass along

Police are urging visitors to their local mall to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons.

They say that the gang usually comprises four members. While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their "mark" (the intended victim) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth - the eldest of this gang of criminals - sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through their pockets and bags for any valuables being carried.

The picture below, taken from CCTV operating in the inner city, shows the gang in operation.

Those damned, dirty ducks....I always knew they were up to something. Stay vigilant, stay strong, and watch your back. Terror level orange.

I heard Daffy is their leader. The bad guys always wear black. Thank MonkeyBoy for the warning!

Dang it, I was afraid of this. There's a gang of Canadian geese that reside around the lake by my apartment building. This explains why car alarms are going off left and right, and why there are so many burglaries in the area. Thank Monkeyboy for the warning, and thank you for posting this too.

e-e: I used to be opposed to duct tape because of the cruel slaughter of all those innocent ducks just to satisfy our fascist appetite for adhesive. No more. Innocent, bah! Increase your purchasing of duct tape. Because otherwise, the terrorist ducks win.

mielikki: good intelligence info, thanks. Tonite, I'm guessing Monkeyboy will be on here to make his own replies.

Tara: See, the xenophobes are right. We gotta tighten border security to screen out all these riff-raff Canadian geese we let fly into our country, unimpeded.

dmarks: Chuck Heston in tha house!

They say geese are mean, but at least they're not thieves.
