Apparently some thieves mistook a truck with curling stones for a beer truck, which really tells you how well known the sport is over here.
But I think this was a gem:
"They are useless to anyone else except for us, apart from as a doorstop or propping up a coffee table," curler Paul Meissner told the Associated Press.
So I think we know how the police will find them. They'll just have to grab a copy of the Trading Post and look for cheap granite rocks that can be used for mundane household tasks.
Incidentally, I'm looking for a good doorstop, perhaps I should invest in a curling stone...
