Officers, I have your thief.
Or a pretty good theory, anyhoo.
Someone stole almost 400,000 toothpicks from a manufacturer in Athens, Georgia.
Since there were no signs of forced entry, the owner thinks a former employee might be the culprit.
Sure, that would explain it. Or maybe it was Stan Munro, the mastermind behind…
Munro says he buys his toothpicks from a wholesaler to create his toothpick replicas of famous landmarks from around the world.
Look at the detail — they are incredible. And that is why I think he’s a prime suspect.
After his endless hours of sitting in one spot and holding a steady hand to create these masterpieces, I’ll bet Stan would enjoy making a run down South and organizing a toothpick heist.

Here’s a riddle to start your Monday:
What do you get when the national holiday honoring Christopher Columbus — famed explorer, colonizer, thief, rapist and genocidist — lands on the exact same day in October as…
National Angel Food Cake Day?
Indigestion from the irony, no doubt.
Trying to celebrate both will cause cognitive dissonance… so might I suggest a mash-up of sorts instead?
National Devil’s Food Cake Day
Now there’s a dessert more befitting Columbus’ unique ‘spirit of adventure.’
Note — there already is a Devil’s Food Cake Day in May. Who knew?
