A 7-foot papier-mâché sculpture of the Hulk was no match for two drunk* guys in a truck, who stole him from outside the Outpost 12 comic book store in Boise, Idaho. According to the Idaho Statesman, the statue was recovered, broken and bruised, from “a drainage ditch at the bad end of 36th Street.” We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
More from the Statesman:
Following what one of the Hulk’s owners, Ray Egusquiza, described as a “semi-anonymous” phone call Friday night from someone claiming to work for “the highway department,” the shattered superhero was hauled from the muck.
He’s currently in seclusion in the Outpost 12 game room.
“His arm is sitting on a table all by itself. Yeah, it’s kind of depressing,” Egusquiza said.
They’re working now to rebuild him.
* For the record, there’s nothing in the story that says the guys were drunk … but it seems like a safe assumption.
