Cookie Monster Returns Stolen Biscuit Emblem


It’s scratched and a little bent but finally the famous golden Leibniz cookie emblem has been returned to its rightful owner… The sign, which weighs around 20 kilograms, was taken in January by someone that described themselves as a ‘Kruemmelmonster’ (‘Cookie Monster’). The thief, who posed in a Sesame Street Cookie Monster outfit wrote ‘I have the cookie! And you want it’ in a letter to a German newspaper. The monster said he wanted the company to donate biscuits to hospital children and give $1,118 to an animal charity. It is unclear if the Bahlsen biscuit company has paid the ransom or not.” w/ photos
