On October 30, two hooligans stole the neon sign outside Kiosk, the Soho store/gallery. Kiosk posted a video of the theft on their blog with the note, "Hope they get fried mount­ing it in their mas­tur­ba­tion booth. Laserlosers."

Yesterday, the Kiosk crew came across a picture of what looked like their missing sign on Racked LA, where it was illuminating a new Urban Outfitters. Kiosk's response, titled "Urban Outfitters you suck cock and more," should go down as a great moment in store blog history:

Some­times I thank God we have no board or investors behind us as I can truly say what I want at any time. Wow, we thought our sign that was stolen was ripped off to be hung in some mas­tur­ba­tion booth in Queens but then we saw it actu­ally reap­peared at Urban Out­fit­ters' new LA out­post! Spank me! Mys­tery Solved! Now that we know where our sign is please send it back! Bril­liant guys, can you think of a new one. You could have at least sent us a check! Sorry to all the nice UO cus­tomers we have, no offense, unless you are the dick­weed who ripped us off.
