Romolo Montoya had a bad day. He woke up to find ten cows, five calves, two horses, and one mule stolen from his New Mexico ranch by the nearby Apache tribe. But here’s the part I’m stuck on. Romolo filed a special form that tells the government how much was stolen, and lists the value. Seriously, look at it. I’ve spent hours now, and, honestly, I think that says he had three Yorke Ovens stolen. I don’t know what a Yorke Oven is, so I’m going with my gut. A Yorke Oven is where Radiohead’s Thom Yorke makes you baked goods. The Apaches stole three from Romolo Montoya.
