Applebaum Pickpocket Suspect

LONDON -- British authorities announced a major breakthrough in their investigation into who stole Washington Post columnist Ann Applebaum's wallet from her Moscow hotel room during a recent tragedy-finding mission.

"After careful consideration of all the facts, we believe we know who stole Ms. Applebaum's wallet. What happened was, while Ms. Applebaum was down in the buffet room gorging on beluga caviar, Russian President Vladimir Putin disguised himself with novelty-store fake glasses, big nose and mustache. Then he slipped into her hotel room, and stole her wallet," said British investigator Jeffery Stank. "No one would have suspected that a Jew would do such a thing."

In Applebaum's recent scathing column, "Trickle Down Lawlessness," she condemned Russian President Putin for creating a society so lawless that it allowed her wallet to be stolen from her pricey Western hotel, a crime that Applebaum described as "an inside job."

Little did she know how inside the inside-job really was.

"We believe that the Kremlin stole her wallet in order to send a message to Applebaum," said Stank. "And Putin's message to her read, 'If you come to Moscow and stay in an expensive Western hotel while looking for signs of Russia's decline, we will find your wallet. No matter which expensive Western hotel you stay at in Moscow, we can steal your wallet, run outside, go into a dark alley, open your wallet up, and find out if you're the type who keeps an expired condom in your wallet," said Stank. "Clearly, the Kremlin is operating outside the bounds of civilized behavior."
