In 2004, the brother of one of our cofounders was a junior in college.  He lived in a student co-op called the Zoo, 1 and someone was stealing his pork chops.

So he taped a flyer* to the fridge.  It elicited the following responses:


  • The culprit checked into the ER.
  • Police were notified.
  • Police investigated.
  • University brass got involved.
  • Authorities called home.
  • Everyone was in a dither.
  • A cop’s hat allegedly disappeared.
  • Authorities were pissed.
  • Time went by.
  • Everyone laughed.
