Goblin Stolen
(with comments)

In Australia: Gobsmacked by mischievous theft.

A giant goblin, a prized piece of artwork, was stolen from a Knox park last week.

Less than two weeks after being installed, the three-foot fibreglass goblin, part of a playground upgrade of the Tim Neville Arboretum, was nabbed by opportunistic vandals.

I'm not surprised. That's a very cool-looking goblin.

Public art that's small enough to be stolen should be so ugly that nobody would want to steal it.

    That would be a really fun thing to have.
    Imagine the hours of fun sneaking into family and friends bedrooms, putting it in a corner or right next to their bed as they slept.

    But why would you want to pay for more ugly art?

    They should have hobbled that goblin.

    Now this is a goblin worth filching:

    before long, goblin will appear in pics from Paris, the cote d'azur, Egypt, London ,NYC and perhaps Bisbee.

    Everyone will be amused.
