Reward for Information Offered

Missing from Camp: Have You Seen this Syrup?

REWARD: $5 or a six pack of your favorite beer for information leading to the identification of the felonious syrup grabbing duck hunter who absconded with roughly 1/2 pint of maple syrup from the Lakewood Cabin near Black Lake, NY, on or about the afternoon of October 7, 2006. Suspects were seen driving away from the vicinity in a tan colored Ford pickup with out of state plates. Please contact the blog administrator with any and all information. Leads will be kept strictly confidential; the culprit(s) will be fingered publicly and humiliated accordingly.

That "Northern Comfort" has a long history of walking out of deer camps, hunting lodges and etc.

reminds me of a Canadian Haiku...

Who took the syrup?
My pan-a-cakes are naked
Give it back now -eh?!

I spotted a sticky trail leading through the hills of central PA within 8 hrs of the first report of the heist in northern NY. Maple syrup is highly prized in PA, where the oak reigns supreme and the sugar maple cowers.

reward for information -
six pack of beer

(This one might be a bit obscure.) One of our members at duck camp took home a pint of maple syrup when he should have left it for the rest of us. Gory details at grousers
