Apparently the tools were stolen on Friday after a couple of actors put them to one side after carrying out a mock castration (another 'tool removal' then...sorry).
Now why would anyone do that?
Well, there are two theories: either they thought they were stealing a "a priceless antique"; or they're looking to remove someone's balls.
Let's examine these hypotheses in detail shall we?
If the tongs were a 'pricless antique', would the London Dungeon just leave them lying around for tourists to half-inch?
And where would London Dungeon get the money to buy some priceless, ancient testicle removers? Have they organised a bit of a swap with the British Musuem? Can we expect to see crappy waxwork likenesses of Jack the Ripper next to the Rosetta Stone?
Not a great surprise to hear then that the tongs were, "fashioned specially for the museum by a modern-day blacksmith".
So let's assume then that someone's got some ball removing that needs doing. The obvious guess is a wronged wife or girlfriend.
Have you been unfaithful lately?
Did your significant other visit the London Dungeon last Friday?
Have you just broken out in a cold sweat and instinctively crossed your legs?
Maybe you should give the London Dungeon 'incident line' a ring: 020 7403 7221.
And remember, ball castration is a relatively rare crime. So don't have nightmares.
