It must be a slow news week in Penzance, as this headline made it onto page two of The Cornishman!!
“Drive by thief seen stealing pickle”
This really is an article about someone who looked shifty, then stole three jars of pickled onions without leaving money in the honesty box!
I am a great lover of honesty boxes, they demonstrate that we do not in fact live in a broken society, but a generous and trusting community. So, I am saddened that someone would take advantage of such a lovely system. However, I have no trouble spotting the comedic value of such a headline!
