No shark, Sherlock!
So, somebody stole a rare shark from an aquarium in England. The owner thinks the thief “came prepared,” because it turns out to steal a shark you have to show up with a big bag full of water, a polystyrene box and a net.
Now, the missing shark was half of a valuable breeding pair, so now they think the thief might come back for the mate.
Has anybody here ever SEEN a crime show? This is where you disguise a common trout with a little phony fin, some plastic teeth and a homing device. Then, when the scoundrels come back to steal him…
Of course, that’s only one way to handle it. They may also want to check hospitals for anyone who recently acquired the nickname “Stumpy,” but I’m not going to do their work for them.
