Mystery: Anybody Missing a Safe?

A mysterious safe with a cryptic offer appears in a rural field. Is it legit or fool’s gold?

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

TWO QUESTIONS ARE ON THE MINDS OF RESIDENTS IN UPSTATE NEW YORK’S BARRE COMMUNITY:

HOW DID A GIANT SAFE END UP IN THE MIDDLE OF A FARMER’S FIELD?

AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT COULD BE INSIDE?

“It could be holding millions of dollars. It could have confetti in there.”

THE SAFE MYSTERIOUSLY APPEARED IN KIRK MATHES’S FIELD WITH A NOTE ATTACHED

IT SAID WHOMEVER COULD OPEN IT, COULD KEEP WHAT’S INSIDE

BUT WAS IT A LEGIT OFFER OR FOOLS GOLD?

DOES IT MATTER? IT’S A MYSTERY BOX FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

LOCALS AND AUTHORITIES TRIED — AND FAILED — TO CRACK THE SAFE

MATHES PLANS TO HIDE IT, SAYING IT’S MORE FUN TO LEAVE IT LOCKED

“My personal feeling is leave it as a mystery. If you open it, the show is over”

A MYSTERY WAS SOLVED IN SWITZERLAND AFTER CHOCOLATE STARTED RAINING FROM THE SKIES

RESIDENTS POSTED PICS OF COCOA SPRINKLES COVERING CARS AND WINDOW PANES IN THE SMALL TOWN OF OLTEN

BUT BEFORE THEY WENT CUCKOO FOR COCOA DUST — A LOCAL CONFECTIONARY TOOK CREDIT

LOCAL MEDIA REPORTED IT THE RESULT OF A VENTILATION SYSTEM MALFUNCTION AT A NEARBY LINDT CHOCOLATE FACTORY …

WHICH ALONG WITH WIND AND RAIN SPREAD THE SWEET, SUGARY SOOT ALL OVER THE TOWN

FINALLY, TAKE A LOOK AT A NON CANDY-RELATED WEATHER PHENOMENON THAT UNFOLDED

WHEN A MASSIVE WATERSPOUT CHURNED UP THE SURF ALONG MIAMI’S GOLDEN BEACH …

AND ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, BRIEFLY TURNED INTO A LOW-GRADE TORNADO

SOME FALLEN TREES WERE REPORTED, BUT NO INJURIES OR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE

LOCALS SAY WATERSPOUTS ARE ACTUALLY QUITE COMMON FOR SOUTH FLORIDA.
