The Big Lebowski bobblehead theft reminded me of the stuffed toy gray-colored shark that was stolen. WhenIdiscovered the culprit who had had it taken from him (it turned out it had passed through many hands!), he (and his irate dad) offereda’replacement’ white fluffy one aboutafourth as big: Dad saidIshouldn’t have had the shark in my classroom in the first place! Eventually the original shark resurfaced andIgot to keep both of them. The kid passed my Oceanology class.
