A Massachusetts man had 40 lawn flamingos stolen from his home, with only a ransom note left behind. There's no word on how much these vicious thieves are demanding, but it has to be somewhere in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. 

The flamingos started disappearing in May, but O'Neil was diligent in replacing them. He received one of the flamingos last month with a ransom note attached, which read, "If you want Arturo and his friends, call this number." (The kind of people who steal lawn flamingos are apparently the same kind of people who name them.)

Instead of calling the number to pay the ransom, O'Neil called the police.

Just pay the ransom; you don't know what these people are capable of. It starts with lawn flamingo theft, but who knows where it ends up?
