He's gone to that great fake bird aviary in the sky.

We're glad that this victim of owl-ornament theft has retained enough faith in humanity to think the perp would care if he or she knew the bird of prey was a Mother's Day gift. We do love imagining a cold-hearted thief suddenly wracked with guilt at destroying a mother's biggest day of the year. Especially a mother who has clearly put in the hours, helping her kids with science fair projects and the like, based on her poster-making and bubble-lettering skills. This is a mom who deserves an adorable, functional fake owl or any other artificial animal she wants for her deck, dammit.
