An eye for an eye, I understand. But a flower for joint inflammation?

Eh. Better than a pillar of salt, I guess.

Well, makes sense. If your joints hurt too much you can no longer have the grip needed for stealing flowers.

Somehow this reminds me of the kind of dialog you hear from those card based role playing games: “You played your Stealth-Stealing Sunflowers card , I smite you with my Ancient Arthritis of Doom.”

There anything wrong with us nerds, pal?

It *is* the Internet, after all. Did you expect the nerds to go away once the cool kids figured out how to use it? Besides, with a gamer reference, the correct slang is “geek”. If you’re gonna insult someone, do it right.

Personally I went with Pokemon in my head because of Sunflora, the Pokemon that looks like a sunflower.
Hey! Maybe that’s what this is all about! Maybe the person the note’s addressed to is a Pokemon thief. Hard to grip a Pokeball when you’ve got arthritis.

Actually, this is just an example of incredible foresight on the part of the thief! Somehow she/he knew that she/he would be smitten with arthritis, and thus stole flowers that she/he would not need to bend over to appreciate!

Not sure;the question mark implies that they are not sure who stole the flowers.

I like this sliding scale idea. Steal sunflowers, get arthritis. Probably if you just covet them, you get a mild case of eczema or something.

Hey if you are going to believe in an imaginary friend you might as well give him/her lots of really cool abilities.

I had a telepathic imaginary friend when I was a kid……this really has nothing to do with anything.

Well, we all know that the wages of sin is death, but I wonder what stealing a car would have gotten?

Now, is this a one-time thing, Jami, or is it a choice between 5 years in prison, or 5 years of the constipation/diarrhea combo?

Choice been prison or a lifetime of what is basically IBS. MAWHAHAHAHAHA!

If this was Yuuka Kazami, then she would have tracked the thief down and punished them.

Love that it’s dated. Just in case there are future notes and they need a way to specify which vandal the note is for.

That unfilled last exclamation mark is driving me cray. Write one PAN at a time and make it a masterpiece!

Is that supposed to be a Jesus fish at the end of the note?
Apr 21, 2013 at 4:40 pm rating: 5
I think so. Maybe they want to convey that age old message “Jesus loves you, the rest of the world thinks you’re an ass”

Yes, it’s an Ichthys.

Sneezing! Wouldn’t “You stole my sunflowers, God punishes you with hayfever” have made much more sense?

That’s the worst fish drawing ever. At least give the bugger an eye, a fin or two, and some scales.

I never understood the reasoning behind stealing plants out of someone’s bed. Can you sell them for a high profit or something? Did the thief carefully dig down to the roots to have intact sunflowers then? Are they award-winning? Is (s)he broke and trying to appease somebody?

If I were going to steal someones garden plants I at lest know enough about transplanting to keep the plant alive in my own yard for my own enjoyment. Thank you Grandma!

I love how this isn’t even a curse or a promise. It’s just a statement of fact. It’s not that God “will” punish you, he just does.
Apr 22, 2013 at 4:44 pm rating: 4
Only a “statement of fact” if God exists.
Apr 26, 2013 at 4:26 am rating: 4
Of course God exists. Look at all the people who have arthritis.
