Thieves steal statues, leave another in its place

Gloucester MA thieves are evidently packrats:

Why on earth would anyone want statues of egrets? I’d rather have Confuscious.

Maybe it is a variant on the traveling lawn gnome, the egrets will pop up somewhere else when that statue gets stolen.

I’ve had a few…but then again, too few to mention.

Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.

Might as well close the thread. Cal just won the internet.

Did they check to make sure it wasn’t egret Voltron?

I’m not heron you…

What, they’re statues of limitations?

They put the other statute there so the booby trap that would be triggered by the weight being gone would not go off.
