Friars Pray for Diarrhea to Strike Bible Thief


The Holy Bible

Franciscan friars in Florence, Italy have had enough. First a rare and valuable bible went missing from the pulpit, and then its replacement, donated by a parishioner, vanished as well.

Fed up, the friars posted a note, in full view of churchgoers, stating their hope for the thief to see the error of his ways, but for good measure, they added a line stating their hope that he be struck down with a bad case of diarrhea.
