Chicago Tribune, October 15, 1922. Here's a little backstory on that scrotum-tightening wave of 'nad thefts back in 1922.

See, your high school principal was right: Cliques are inherently evil.

What, they took the meat along with the two veg? That's just plain gratuitous.

Gotta commend the guy for coming forward. That took, um, guts.

Yes, Henry's just as happy as a comfy old house cat. It hasn't changed him a bit.

This is actually pretty close to the plot of Tim McCann's way-sick 2005 neo-noir Nowhere Man. It's little known but esteemed by some of the world's most discerning film critics.

Had Crowe been a little more erudite, he might have thrown in a reference to "Gland Guignol."

A crime of mayhem: yes, at very least.

Stay tuned for further developments.
P.S. Somehow it escaped my attention till now that the headline promises "two more" victims of gland banditry, whereas text yields but one victim robbed of two glands. Talk about your fuzzy math.
