Bikini Models and Cheerleaders? Not This Christmas
From wsbtv.com -
While wandering through the mall I’m sure you have given that kiosk, you know the one that sells every sort of calendar available, a glance or two. As shoppers bustled about a busy Georgia shopping mall Saturday, a couple of thieves made off with $2,000 worth of calendars from one of the kiosks inside. But the owner says it was no ordinary theft. Jessica Roy, who describes the thieves as a young white couple, made off with more than 100 calendars all showing men and women scantily clothed, like the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. They left a dozen chastising signs in their place.
“Sorry misogyny is out of stock”, “Women are people, not fantasies” and “Should have gone with the puppies”
Jessica is offering a reward for their return or information leading to an arrest in the case. “I’m pretty forgiving … you want to bring them back crumpled and wet and soggy and put them in a box or bag and leave them for me, that’s fine,” she says. “I can write off damaged products; I can’t write off missing product.”
