One of my readers, and a regular top commentator – Jon – gave me a great idea during the week.
For at least the next few weeks, on Sundays, I will be posting 3 stories in the email hoaxes/urban legends category.
Two of these stories will be true. One will be no more than a hoax.
Can you guess which is which?
Here is the first – The Toilet Roll Thief
Allen Buechel, an executive at Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, this week reported that a persistent thief is coming in and stealing around 6 toilet rolls per week.
The suspect usually comes in once or twice each week and takes the toilet roll from dispensers.
Both full and part rolls are stolen from the men’s public toilets at the Fond du Lac City Government Centre. The thefts began back in June.
Buechel suspects that the thief is either using the toilet paper for their own use or is, perhaps, planning some kind of elaborate prank with them.
Buechel is also optimistic that the thief will be caught, possibly in the act.
Whilst the toilet paper is hardly expensive, courthouse officials are still determined to catch the thief and are looking out for any suspicious activity.
TRUTH or HOAX?
What do you think?
