Headline of the day

According to the Oakland Tribune: Bag of bones goes missing in Atherton.

And yeah, it was a real bag of human bones. A police search and rescue dog was doing a demonstration, after which, according to the Tribune “the organizers accidentally left the bones behind overnight inside a black plastic bag.” This forced a new search and rescue:

When the organizers realized the gaffe, they went back to the park on Tuesday and couldn’t find them after a search. The bones were reported missing that day.

“They were probably just thrown away,” the police official said.

So if you find a bag of bones near Atherton, kindly give them back to the dog.

    So if you find a bag of bones near Atherton, kindly give them back to the dog.

    Bad idea – you don’t want the dog to get accustomed to humans finding his bones for him, that would ruin the whole training effort! Should read: So if you find a bag of bones near Atherton, kindly put them someplace where the dog can find them.

    But where could it be? Hmmm….where do bags of bones normally hang out… Hmmm… Say, is there a modeling agency in Atherton?
