Do Not Mess With Tuscan Monks

“A group of Franciscan monks furious at the theft of bibles from their church in Florence have taken the unusual step of praying for the thief to be struck down by diarrhoea…. In a note, pinned up in full view of worshippers, the monks say they hope the thief sees the error of his ways. But in case he does not, they add: ‘We pray to God that the thief is struck by a strong bout of the shits.’”
