The not-so-great San Francisco caper

Bad karma comes in doses of all sizes.

There's stealing a cookie from Santa -- which depending on your parental status and or/whether Santa has a nut allergy -- is fairly low on the spectrum. On the other end has to be stealing a LEGO sculpture of San Francisco landmarks. To paraphrase Austin Powers, honestly...who steals some LEGO?

The Benz family had LEGO scale creations of Ghirardelli Square, the Conservatory of Flowers, and Palace of Fine Arts stolen from the cab of their pick-up truck. All told, $6,000 in LEGO bricks went missing last week and that doesn't account for the hours and skill that goes into building each of those MOCs.

I hope they are returned because if they're not, somebody is definitely due for a lump of coal next Christmas.
