Here's Your Book--With Mayo
Let me first be very clear that these escapades occurred in the southern part of Idaho, not our Paradise Panhandle.
Seems that police in Boise finally caught the Condiment Caperess. A 74-year-old woman was arrested after dumping a jar of mayonnaise into the book drop box at the Ada County library. Condi is now a suspect in as many as ten similar crimes that have occurred in the past year. Since May of 2009 library employees have reported finding books in the drop box covered in corn syrup and ketchup.
Condi is now out of jail and facing a misdemeanor charge for malicious injury to property. No motive for the crime has been stated.
Hmmm. There's always a motive. I think the different condiments have to mean something, don't you? Perhaps:
Mayo: Oily protagonist, description laid on too thick.
Ketchup: Far too much gore.
Syrup: Sickeningly sweet plot. Flat characters (as in pancakes).
You have other ideas?
