People steal from children and Ricky Gervais

More than 12,000 copies of Ricky Gervais' Flanimals Pop-Up were stolen from a truck, totaling more than $240,000 worth of lost merchandise. Says Gervais:
“This is obviously a misguided Flanimal Rights Group or an organized gang of eight-year-olds,” he said in a statement. “Just like the books, the thieves will fold under questioning.”
Aw, Ricky. You always know what to say.


  1. Aside from the delicious Pablo's coffee sitting on my desk, this is the absolute best way I could have started my morning. Just read it to my co-worker and she practically fell on the floor laughing.

  2. That guy is one of the funniest humans on the planet. We have a flanimals book...I didn't know there were pop ups out! Gotta get one. Apparently there will be some available on eBay at a sharply discounted rate sometime soon.
