Update: Lucky Dog Music Hall will be open at 5 PM today for anyone who wants to make a donation in lieu of what happened last night.  

Since the Telegram and Gazette doesn’t seem to think this story is newsworthy it’s become our job to tell you about it. I’ve been messaged by several people about the Lucky Dog Cafe’s Toys for Tots fundraiserTo get in the door last night you had to donate $10 or bring a unwrapped toy. The sixth annual “Santapalozza” has been a smashing success the past few years. You go down there, get wasted, enjoy some good tunes, and happy children get to wake up on Christmas with some cool new toys. Everyone wins.

Well apparently the toys were stored in a van adjacent to the Lucky Dog on Plymouth Street. So in classic Green Island style someone jacked the van up and stole all the toys. I’m aware that there are a never ending supply of dooshnozzles in this world, but it takes a special kind of slug rake to do something like this. I mean, what the hell are you gonna do with five boxes of toys? Go home and give them to your children that you see twice a year? Right. Let’s be honest – they’re gonna try to sell the toys for drug money.

Newsflash – you’re not stealing from the rich, you’re stealing from the poor. Kids who come from middle class families are gonna have a nice Christmas this year. Those toys weren’t for them. They were for kids that are unfortunate enough to be born into poverty. They’ve already been handed the shit end of the stick in life, and now some asshole has to go and ruin Christmas for them.

Someone had to have seen something. The street was busy and there were five huge boxes. Plus, the morons that did this are obviously professional nudniks, so they’re gonna talk. I have a hard time believing they’re gonna take them home and play barbies, so more than likely they’re gonna try selling their booty on the black market. If any of your sketchy “friends” on Facebook are all of a sudden trying to sell toys, do the right thing and send us an anonymous confidential message on Facebook, or email us at You have our word that your name will not be brought into it.

Let’s see if we can make a difference for these kids. Share this on Facebook. The more people that read it the better our chances of finding these vile pieces of human garbage and bringing them to justice. We all like hot takes and all, but thousands of people will read this and hopefully one of you has something you can share with us. Let’s use the power of the Turtleboy Sports Revolution for something positive. Turtleboy Sports is a family blog, and the children of Worcester are counting on you.

    Try explaining materialism to a tot that dreams of Santa….a child that hopes he or she is worth a present this year..a child that really does have nothing through no fault of their own. Ididdiotic comments should be kept in the heads of the iddiotic owner’s.

    This is awful. My car was broken into parked on Water St on Wednesday the 10th, I wonder if the break ins are related.

    Alright John, enough of your quest for attention, go back to the town from whence you were spawned. Oh yeah, I’m not a truck driver but I sell them so I guess I’ll speak as you say they do: “You Fargin Icehole”

    Hey Turtleboy; Are they still collecting this week? I just read this and I’d like to donate a toy, and I’d also like to send a “wack-a-mole” to John.

    There have been a few people listing throughout the concord area lots of children’s toys for $5 a piece…. all these toys retail for $20-50. Seems odd for grown men to have so many unopened toys and selling them so cheap.

    First of all I want the say that’s it’s awful what happened regarding the stolen toys for unfortunate children getting something from SANTA on Christmas. It is so awesome to see real smiles of joy on there faces(PRICELESS) .Christmas is a time to open up our hearts and to be blessed for what we’ve had all year,and spread a bit of joy,laughter,comfort,peace and love.So let’s really evaluate this situation on a positive side,and believe me that there is one.2 wrongs don’t make anything write.We are all the same thinking that it’s some homeless person/addict/drunk/etc.But they are not the ones getting caught stealing from vehicles with gifts at the malls each year.Let this not turn into injury or even death to those who want revenge.Hearts will pour out even stronger now since this happening.Maybe bigwig politicians can reach into their pockets.”IT’S FOR THE CHILDREN” for only 1 day a year.Also,a note to the parents of the fortunate and unfortunate you have 364 days to create this eventful celebration of your or another’s child to release those Wonderful Smiles.Merry Christmas and Peace to all.

    With all the bad going on in the world these days, having programs like this, that help local kids out, is fantastic.. Anyone that would steal from a child, definitely gets their human status revoked…I don’t know these crooks, but I hate their actions. Someone saw something.. They had to have.. Are we going to continue to be the generation that didn’t see anything, because we can’t lift our eyes from the cell phone screen long enough to look around? Come forward, and report what you saw please… Thank you

    No matter how you feel about Americans being spoiled , John, the fact that someone decided to rip off toys meant for kids in crappy situations is what this is about, not your obvious pride in being deprived. For whatever reason you had no toys ( an exaggration, I suspect,because you might have made a sword from a tree branch ) you stray from the topic when you trumpet the fine way you turned out without an etch a sketch or a GI Joe.

    John, while the materialistic nature of Christmas is often dubious, it is nonetheless an emotional crutch that lets both the giver and the receiver experience some level of generosity a gratitude, respectively. What makes you a douche, is that seeing someone limping along using a crutch of this sort, during this holiday season, is that you want to run up to them, kick it out from under them, and berate and belittle anyone who disagrees, for the sake of amusing yourself by being “right” in your own mind. Nothing about your attitude is right when it is based on callous apathy.

    Not just green island style….all the Worcester politicians worry about I’d keeping the select main strips looking nice to attract people looking to spend money while carring less about the drugs, violence, and robberies going on in the poor side streets neighborhoods.

    The ultimate irony would be if the toys were stolen by other children and your call to vengeance is essentially telling people to beat up little kids. You may want to watch your ‘news’ headlines….

      Really?? First you make a moronic statement….which I believe to be the dumbest ever, then you follow up with “The ultimate irony would be if the toys were stolen by other children”….last time I was at the lucky dog, or bar hopping on Green St late at night, there was so many children around….ugh….close your flip phone and stop posting.

    Too bad you didn’t get toys. Had you, maybe you wouldn’t be such a miserable prick

      Nah, I find that this whole toy thing is what spoils you Americans to begin with. I’m glad most of my town didn’t celebrate Christmas. It’s ideals are too contradictory to the rest of the religion it came from anyways.

    Didn’t get toys at Christmas. Turned out ok. I’m sure your call to vengeance is much better suited to the holiday spirit consumerist whores. Don’t have a computer either, typing this on my flip phone.

    • December 14, 2014 at 9:09 pm

      You didn’t get toys because obviously no one could ever love you.

    John you douchecopter…It is Christmastime. Some of these kids have nothing. Jeebus forbid someone gives them a toy to have some fun. Why don’t you go live in the woods somewhere (without your computer btw) give up your materialistic possesions and do us all a favor

    This isn’t news. If we weren’t so materialistic no one would care.

      December 14, 2014 at 3:47 pm

      What a stupid thing to say “this isn’t news” and “materialistic”. It’s toys for tots you unsympathetic shithead ,they were robbed and that’s the best you can come up with. Everybody digs your unmaterialistic self. Perhaps you should unfuck yourself and your ego.

    • December 14, 2014 at 9:08 pm

      I’m used to people disagreeing with the things I write. This was the one blog I was convinced no one would disagree with. Humanity never ceases to surprise me.

    Thank you for posting this. The amount of deuchebaggery that happens on any given night is astonishing. The upside is we are going to open the Lucky Dog up tonight at 5 for more donations for the kiddies. Come get ninja tutle boy wasted and bring an unwrapped toy.
