Check out more hot takes from Dubsism
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 fundraiser. To 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 Turtleboysports@yahoo.com. 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.
