Off the walls

Thieves in Germany made off with more than 5 tons of Nutella, the chocolate-hazelnut spread, and police said Monday that they believe the culprits might be the same bunch who earlier swiped a truckload of energy drinks.

German authorities were on the lookout for anyone with telltale sticky fingers and exhibiting signs of the mother of all sugar rushes.

Speaking of brown goop: In Montana, a man whose golden retriever ate five $100 bills fished through the dog’s droppings for the C-notes’ remains, which he then washed, taped together and mailed to the federal government in hopes of obtaining replacement bills.

If this works, leave it to the government to fall for an excuse that has failed to fool generations of teachers.

What was the point again? CNN pulled the plug on “(Get to) The Point,” a late-night talk show in which a panel of D-list pundits argued over current events, just one week after it debuted.

The show’s audience was tiny, and reportedly consisted mostly of writers for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” looking for material.
