“Portuguese Ransom” – e-Hawaii Joke
There was a Portuguese woman who was having financial troubles, so she decided to kidnap a child and demand a ransom. She went to a local park, grabbed a little boy, took him behind a tree and wrote this note:
“I have kidnapped your child. Leave $10,000 in a plain brown bag behind the big oak tree in the park tomorrow at 7 AM. Signed – “The Podagee”
She pinned the note inside the boy’s jacket and told him to go straight home.
The next morning, she returned to the park to find the $10,000 in a brown bag, behind the big oak tree, just as she had instructed. Also inside the bag was the following note:
“Here is your money. But I cannot believe that one Podagee would do this to another.”
