Breaking into the California State Mining and Mineral Museum on Friday, thieves armed with pickaxes made off with $2 million worth of gold and jewels, but failed to crack a safe containing a famous 14-pound hunk of gold known as the Fricot Nugget. What do you think?

  • “Thank goodness. My kids really have their hearts set on seeing that Fricot Nugget.”

  • “It’ll be easy to find them. All police need to do is watch for any new mineral museums that pop up suspiciously fast.”

  • “Wish I’d got the alert earlier—I saw two guys with pickaxes and sacks of gold at Del Taco but didn’t think anything of it at the time.”
