Good Day World!
If you’re a beer lover this story may disturb you.
In a mind-numbing raid, thieves broke into a shop in Muelheim, Germany and opened 1,200 bottles of Koenig Pilsener beer…
so what’s the big deal?
They DID NOT drink the beers.
Not even one bottle. Instead the cretins left the untouched bottles in their crates – their destiny unfulfilled. The amber brew inside left to spoil.
From the start, investigators thought it was an odd robbery because only one brand of beer was violated. The Koenig Pilsener. When they discovered pieces of metal on the ground the mystery deepened.
Clever heads prevailed however, and the authorities soon discovered that lots of bottle caps were missing and why.
The bottle caps had tokens printed on them — with some entitling the holder to tools and speakers. (source)
It seems to me that all the brewing company has to do is sit back and wait for some clown to redeem a bag of bottle caps. Or, maybe the booty was divided up between several clowns, in which case the purloined bottle caps should still stand out when compared to normal submissions.
In any event, a lot of good beer was wasted. And that’s a damn crime!
Time for me to walk on down the road…
