I think this was pointed out by someone in my FL, but I might have actually read it in the Globe and Mail while I was in Calgary.

Police probing Quebec maple syrup heist worth up to $30-million

The theft was discovered during a routine inventory check last week at the St-Louis-de-Blandford warehouse, where the syrup is being held temporarily. The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, which is responsible for the global strategic maple syrup reserve, initially kept the news quiet, hoping it would help police solve the crime quickly.

Instead of stealing the barrels the maple syrup was in, they drained it out, and left the barrels! I wonder how long they spent on it?

[ profile] pgdudda, [ profile] sevenmpls, [ profile] quility, [ profile] trochai and I were playing Corsari at the Minn-StF Pool Party. A discussion of MMORPGs came up.

[ profile] pgdudda tried to pronounce MMORPG. It came out something like MORE PORG.

My reply was "I will have to call them Ankhs from now on.

I got several confused looks. [ profile] quility said, "Angsts?". "No, Ankhs - A N K H."

There was a pause of several seconds.

And then much groaning. And congratulations, and claiming that it had to go up on LJ, Facebook, and Diaspora.

Explanation, in case you haven't figured it out yet )

When someone sees a shark swimming down Main Street in Goodna.

Yes, I know they're having awful flooding there. But it's still amusing.

I asked: How soon will I get a new job?

The Basis:
Ice cream, reversed
A soda jerk cheerfully puts the cherry on the top of a giant ice-cream sundae dripping with hot fudge, and offers it to the viewer.
Meaning: Do not delay. A good offer now will lose value the longer you let it sit.

The Situation:
Network, reversed
A fisher in a flying boat casts a net forth, trying to catch from a school of flying laptop computers. Mystical symbols show on their screens.
Meaning: It is easy to get tangled up in distractions, so you should focus tightly on what is important to you.

The Outcome:
A gleaming robotic musician steps onto a stage under brilliant lights, fingers ready to pluck a musical instrument that is part of its body.
Meaning: People are really interested in what you have to offer right now.

You may ask another question.

An Assyrian clay tablet dating to around 2800 B.C. bears the inscription: "Our Earth is degenerate in these later days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book and the end of the world is evidently approaching."
