Global Maple Syrup Reserve Robbed!

Postby rabble » Mon Sep 03, 2012 8:21 pm

And from the "You just can't make this stuff up" department, maple syrup thieves siphoned off thirty fucking million dollars worth of sticky stuff.

In hindsight, it seems quite logical. Drive in, hook yer electric maple syrup siphon pump up, transfer 3.75 million liters or so into your own barrels, and drive away nonchalantly.

Seems they put all their money into quality control to insure the syrup would keep well, and would be able to track each barrel back to the grove it was tapped from. Very little went to security, apparently.

Two best parts of that article:
1. The phrase "global strategic maple syrup reserve"
2. "This isn’t the first time maple syrup has gone missing..."

I blame Paul Bunyan. He's the only person I can think of who would need that much maple syrup.

If they get caught, they could be in a sticky situation! What would the sentence be, life without pancakes or french toast?
