Nun Bun Conspiracy
In 1997, months before her death, Mother Teresa was so pissed-off that Nashville's Bongo Java was selling Nun Bun t-shirts, she wrote to them, asking them to stop selling merchandise with her image on a cinnamon bun.
Perhaps the thief who stole the Nun Bun this past Christmas was a big Mother Teresa fan, and acted in a revolutionary manner to honor her humility.
If that's the case, it is possible that the thief destroyed the bun immediately after stealing it, setting it aflame in some dark alleyway. I wonder what a shellaced cinnamon bun looks like, aflame.
There's a fine line between false idols and American kitsch. But it's also a shame to shellac a good cinnamon bun if it's eventually going to be destroyed anyway.
