The Gangs of Åstorp


Sunday “… five men were indicted, some of them members of the Black Cobra criminal gang. They are suspected of involvement in cake theft from the Godbiten bakery in Åstorp [pop. 8500] earlier this week. The cake was stolen from a truck on an industrial estate.

120 boxes containing among other things mazarines, brownies and apple pie were taken from the site.”

Via Swedish Radio.

    When nobody was looking, the Black Cobra Gang took 120 cakes. They took 120 cakes. That’s as many as twelve tens. And that’s terrible.

    I would quite like some cake, myself. And tea. Damn that Black Cobra gang!

    Aha! Didn’t know that. I like the picture of Wonder Woman fighting a whale for her shoes.
