The International Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve



  •  "In a nondescript warehouse in the village of St-Antoine-de-Tillytown, some 40
    kilometres southwest of Quebec City, there is a 6.3-million-kilogram stash of maple syrup.  About 60 kilometres further south, another 1.4-million-kilogram cache is squirrelled away in Plessisville.  Together, these stockpiles are officially called the International
    Strategic Reserve, which works like a Fort Knox for Canada's
    most-cherished breakfast condiment."

    Then how was I able to calculate that 7.7 million kilograms of maple syrup is slightly more than 1.5 million gallons.

     

     

    Oh wait . . . .   never mind.

    This just in:  The RCMP has foiled a plot to crash trucks filled with waffles into the warehouse.

     



  • Truth is stranger than fiction

     A "large quantity" of maple syrup was stolen from the warehouse.




  • saw the story initially on NPR;

    one of the most hilarious crimes of which I've heard.

    I believe (baselessly) that it was perpetrated by sasquatch.

    The thing I found funniest about this story is the total incompetence of the reporting.  I found at least three different reports of the theft and every one started off by saying that $30 Million worth of maple syrup had been stolen.  But then later in the same article it says that $30 Million is the total value of all the syrup stored in the warehouse, and that the actual quantity stolen is "unknown".
