    Re: "hunt somebody" and "hunt for somebody"

    Yes.

    A better question is, what kind of toilet parts was he stealing?

    Your messages are turned off so I cannot respond to yours through a private message.

    If I am offensive, I'll stop posting in your threads. It was not my intention to offend anyone, it was just a silly joke.

    cheers

    Re: "hunt somebody" and "hunt for somebody"

    Sunsunmoon, please don't take offence at freezeframe's whimsical comment. I thought it was quite funny, as I too had wondered what toilet parts were worth stealing.

    The unintentional humour of your post lies in the comical juxtaposition of what the two thieves had been stealing: millions of dollars-worth of art, and spare parts for a toilet, which can be bought for a few dollars from a plumbers' merchant.

    I'm still chuckling about it.

    No offence intended by either of us - honestly. Put it down to our quirky sense of humour.
