Incident #3

A concerned ITP student wrote CSSMM today, hoping we could help perform a little social justice. Yes, that’s right, folks. ANOTHER mug has gone missing from the 4th floor of 721 Broadway, aka Clay Shirky‘s Batcave.

Michael Martinez-Campos, writes the following:

here’s the case: My coffee mug has gone missing. It has the California state flag, a pic of a brown bear with the words California Republic written underneath. Haven’t seen it for a week. And I bought the damn thing to ward off homesickness.

Do your magic, Sarah!

The bottom of the mug had the cryptic letters ‘MMC’ written on the bottom.

The image on the mug:

Now, we’re not saying Shirky stole this mug. We’re just saying a mug went missing within feet of Shirky’s office. It’s easy to write this off as more Shirky thievery, but could there be a copycat on the loose?

You can help! Obviously, if you see this mug, please return it to its rightful, homesick owner. If you see Clay Shirky, check his hands. Is he holding a mug with this California flag on it? If you are in Clay Shirky’s office, look around. Do you see any mugs? Use that camera phone. Be sneaky. We know you can do it.

Send in your tips. We’re going to catch this predator.

  1. I think you need Mark Triant to help you make fliers saying “MISSING! REWARD IF FOUND! AND NO, IT IS NOT CAPS LOCK DAY TODAY”
