In case that link disappears: BERLIN (AP) These thieves might really have sticky fingers. Police said Monday an unknown number of culprits made off with 5 metric tons (5.5 tons) of Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread from a parked trailer in the central German town of Bad Hersfeld over the weekend. The gooey loot is worth an estimated 16,000 euros ($20,710). Germans news agency dpa reported that thieves have previously stolen a load of energy drinks from the same location.

Whoa! So a whole lot of people are going to miss their breakfast Nutella and go into withdrawal. . . How do the thieves plan to unload all that? Flea markets? Can they just truck it out of Germany without getting caught?

Its Nutella. They can just eat it. Sounds like about a 1 year supply for my kids.

"How do the thieves plan to unload all that?" Are you kidding? There's a black market for ANYTHING that's in demand. I doubt they have much problem unloading it.

I wonder if you can get high on a mixture of energy drinks and Nutella?

Ummm, yeah, Karen - we're gonna need to see that receipt...Are there any Krogers in Eastern Europe?

Then there's all that maple syrup that went missing in Quebec, and the Girl Scout cookies stolen somewhere in Georgia. If a big shipment of limoncello goes missing, we're pointing fingers at you, Eileen. Jo-that must be a cousin to Barney Kroger!

Why didn't it explode? In the movies, every car that bursts into flames explodes. Bummer.

Maybe someone smuggling back to the US? My wife swears that Nutella in Europe tastes better than it does in the USA and that Nutella
eaten in Italy tastes best of all!

Methinks the contraband culprit might just be the person reporting the heist. For months now Eileen comes to our meetings and orders several dozen dry pieces of toast at Panera, her pockets bulging. She excuses herself for long periods (I always thought she was taking a limoncello nip.) and returns with a brown mustache. Caught ya', Eileen-from-Texas. We know how to connect
the (ahem) nuts...

"Don't know whether to laugh or laugh harder!" Potentially dangerous auto fire? Yeah, hilarious... Would it have been even funnier to you if some Eton boys were trapped in the car, comrade?

Secret coded message for...can't say, but leave the delivery truck full of bananas parked in 'The Spot' (at Bad Hersfeld) - unlocked, and with the keys under the floormat ;-) And be prepared for next month's, ummmm, 'delivery' - crêpe flour. This isn't what it looks like. Remember - it's secret code.
