they made the baby jesus cry
"TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: WE HAVE YOUR BABY JESUS. IF YOU EVER WANNA SEE YOUR BABY JESUS AGAIN, LEAVE 800 DOLLARS IN SMALL BILLS, NOT TRACEABLE, IN THE MAILBOX OF ... WE WILL CONTACT YOU LATER WITH FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS. YOURS TRULY."
$800 for a plastic Jesus? For about 70 bucks the owners can run down to any mall and pick up another one.
Maybe they thought it was the real baby Jesus? In that case, they should have asked for a hell of a lot more than $800.
The note was signed:
The note was signed by "Me, him and the other kid who was really scared and didnít want to take your baby Jesus and the whole time all he did was say stuff like youíre going to hell, this isnít right, stop."
I'm sure I shouldn't find this amusing in any way, but I do. You really have to give the thieves credit with that note. They sure knew how to get in the local paper.
