The Childlike Empress was a crush of mine way back in the day.

Apparently she's still hot (she's a dance instructor or something):

I'll go out on a limb and assume it's from the UK, just based on teeth alone.

I could be wrong.

I also would like to know... I had to stare at the picture for 10 seconds while my brain was recovering from the initial shock.

a family in my town has a trio of penguin statues they decorate nicely for every holiday. one year some youths absconded with the penguins as a prank. the locals freaked, they loved the penguins. got lots of press. the penguins quickly reappeared unscathed. life is good.

I have, but I've never seen it. That wasn't a conscious choice, I've just never come across it. Now I'm going to have to find it.

I'm crushed that the UK wasn't responsible for that picture.

I didn't read tfa, but assume it is a prank. One of my friends left one of those duck umbrellas in my car. I immediately started sending her ransom notes and threatening to make duck a lorange if she didn't pay up.

Not as good as the time I stole a little stuffed animal off her desk and then had friends all over the world send her postcards signed by her little stuffed animal, but still fun.

Hmmm, been a while since I tormented her - any ideas?

I have three pink flamingos. A ransom demand could break me. I'm going to have to put an electrified fence around them.

i used to live in a neighborhood that had about 6-10 families that worked as NYC cops
they would steal each others reindeer and put it on other peoples lawns ,they were good neighbors

In HS, some buddies of mine stole a big, decorative bronze koi fish from Charro's house (yes, that Charro. Her nephew was in their class). They intended to do the whole ransom note/send pictures of the fish at different landmarks thing.

Then the police got involved, and a funny prank almost resulted in felony charges for the guys involved.

What's the moral? Don't ever park with Charro's pishes!

We've got, gosh, I dunno...5 or 6. Plus various sundry items inside. Sister-in-law once stole one and actually did this ransom thing with us.

Went to her house (about an hour away) and she had it in a hangman's noose, hanging in the rafters of her garage. We got it back. She treated us to steak on the grill to boot, so it's all good.
