Penguin Kidnapped

by duncanr

P-p-p-pick up a penguin is a phrase made famous by a series of TV commercials in the 70s for Penguin chocolate biscuits

A punter at The Union pub in Gloucester, England has taken this instruction literally and kidnapped a penguin called Elvis

Apparently, the kidnapper(s) was/were pissed off with the constant Xmas music assaulting their ears when visiting the pub and are threatening to cut Elvis’s throat if their demand that the music stop is ignored

Whoops!

by noseycow

An American security consultant, billed as an ‘anti-kidnap expert’  has been kidnapped. Felix Batista had negotiated the release of dozens of kidnap victims in South America before he was ‘taken’ in Mexico.

In the current economic climate, one wonders if it’s the kidnappers or the victim who are trying to ‘cut out the middle man’.
