At approximately 9:30 am MST, Joseph, resident of the 1500 block of Nazareth, was located.
He was found, lying face-up, in a pink, fuzzy purse, labeled “Princess”.
He was tired, dehydrated, and disoriented, but otherwise unharmed.
He has since been returned to his perch on the advent calendar.
His wife Mary, had this to say: “What the hell were you thinking? I’m gonna pop this kid out any minute, I’m sleeping in a god-damn barn, and you abandon me? Don’t even get me started on the 3 Wise Guys over there; Balthazar’s been staring at my chest all night. Eyes up here, dude, or I’ll smite your ass so hard….where was I? Oh yeah, Joseph. So when the chips are down, you go hide out in a purse like some punk-ass bitch…you look at me when I’m talking to you…”
Was Joseph the victim of a toddler’s abduction and subsequent loss of memory? Was he making a break for it? No one knows for sure. And Joseph’s not talking.
