Kidnappers: Doughboy Under Baking Threat

Postby knapplc » Fri May 05, 2006 1:19 pm

(CBS) PLAISTOW, N.H. A 4-foot tall Pillsbury Doughboy, which watched over a New Hampshire supermarket for 20 years, has been kidnapped. His captors have been chronicling his plight in a series of ransom notes and photos.

The Doughboy stood atop the dairy aisle at the Market Basket in Plaistow, N.H., for decades, reports WBZ-TV.

Employees considered him their store mascot. But, the store in Stateline Plaza is now closing, and the Doughboy's captor claims to be a loyal customer trying to stop the shutdown.

How somebody snatched the 4-foot tall Styrofoam statue is still a mystery. He disappeared on April 15. Immediately, the pictures started coming in the mail, complete with notes detailing Doughboy's daily doings.

In the first note, the captors wrote, "If you close the store, the Pillsbury Dough Boy will be baked." The accompanying picture showed the mascot wearing a blindfold.

Since then the photos have arrived every couple of days. Later images showed him at a Dairy Queen, at a local fire station, a hamburger stand and a local strip club.

The most recent photo shows the Doughboy at Hampton Beach. The notes have all been mailed from different places, typed in different font sizes, style, and colors.

As for the Plaistow police, they are not investigating. The store hasn't filed a report. But employees are hoping that when the store closes for good on Saturday, they will be reunited with their faithful friend.


A slideshow of the kidnappers' photos can be found here.

There is no word on how the kidnappers will administer the ganja, but authorities are surmising that a water-bong will be used.

How else would you bake a giant styrofoam doughboy? O:-)

I feel kind of bad for the store owners, but I guess they're closing it down anyway. It's hilarious. :-b
