So not Big Gerry then?

Looks like this donut mugging wasn’t as a result of Big Gerry being in town, luckily the pies were all safe:

An Arrowtown cafe was left in short supply of bread after a dog with a penchant for panini, French sticks, doughnuts and bagels made off with $60 worth of stock.

Bread was delivered to Arrowtown’s Espresso Love cafe at the earlier time of 3am last Saturday and left in an outside area.

Cafe owner Jacynda Wallace said she arrived at the cafe to find nearly all of the bread destined for the day’s customers gone.

The theft was reported at 9am and Ms Wallace expected police to be looking for a two-legged culprit.  Read more »

Should Have Blown On The Pie, Ctd

The Coroner has decided now that pies are killers.

A pregnant woman who died when she crashed into a powerpole may have been eating a pie at the time, according to a coroner’s report.

Melissa Mahia, who worked at Mr Apple Coolstores in Whakatu, Hastings was driving away from the market store last November when she lost control of her car.

The report says the 27-year-old’s vehicle, a green Lexus ES300, hit a wooden pole on the side of Ruahapia Rd in Hastings.

You know, not that she may have just been boyracing

“[It was] closing in very quickly behind the brown car in front,” the report said.

“I wondered if the two cars were racing.”

It is “possible” that the pie caused the crash

Coroner Chris Devonport said in his report it was possible Ms Mahia was distracted by the pie, which in combination with the high speed she was driving at, contributed to the crash.

ALWAYS blow on the pie.



He should have blown on it


An Aussie man has got in trouble be he ate instead of just blowing on the pie. Everyone knows that you should always blow on the pie.

A drunk Australian man was arrested for disorderly behaviour after he went into a Queenstown bakery and ate another customer’s pie.

The man, 33, who refused to give police his details, was taken to the police station, where he vomited on arrival.

Police picked up another drunk man about 7am yesterday, asleep in the entranceway to Queenstown Airport.

The man could not remember where he was staying or where he had left his bags and said he had decided to come to the airport because he just wanted to go home.

Police took no further action.

Where was Gerry yesterday?

NZ Herald

Someone has nicked hundreds of pies…not many leads…I wonder where Gerry or Parekura were yesterday?

Thieves who stole hundreds of pies from an Oamaru bakery could find their haul too hot to handle.

Police are baffled why the culprits were so greedy and have warned people to be on their guard if they are offered a large quantity of pies on the cheap.

The thieves ignored other foodstuffs when they targeted Coupland’s Bakery at the weekend.

About $850 worth of pies were taken.

Community Constable Bruce Dow asked the obvious question: “Why would anyone take that many pies?”
