Some Idiots had to much to

Some Idiots had to much to drink, walked past it, decided to steal it, and about 3/4 of a mile later realized it was to heavy and what the fuck were they going to do with it anyway and set it down.

Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Brookline, and tell them, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my menorah go, that it may serve me to navigate that damned rotary.

If turkeys have figured out how to move a 300 pound menorah, then we've got some serious trouble ahead.

There's a strip mall at the rotary, and it used to have a store called the Roundabout.
