Original Post:

Ok, this has to be one of the weirdest stories EVER!

Someone in New Hampshire has kidnapped a Pillsbury Doughboy statue from a local grocery store and is sending ransom notes along with photos. One of the photos was a picture of the Doughboy in front of the gates of CANOBIE LAKE PARK!!!!


Watch this video here:

Robb, you have entirely too much free time in your life to find these things.


I needed a laugh today, and you provided quite nicely.

I heard this on the radio earlier.

There have also been pix of him applying for work at a few franchises like BK and Wendys...

And so far - no 'dough' has been demanded for his return, nyuk nyuk.

Saw this on the news last night and lets just say its probably the funniest thing I have heard all day. That doughboy... so awesome.

Although the grocery store it was at is closing this weekend says the news.
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

^ Is it closing because it no longer has it's Doughboy?! Has the ransom bankrupted it?! ::lol::

I'm not so sure about Robb having too much free time, but the person who's pulling this prank DEFINITELY does. Pointless but hilarious. ::lol::

Down and out over his failure to find a new job, Doughboy turned to booze and strippers.
