This is the coolest story! I just had to share it with you. A secret underground society. How wicked is that?

Here is a small snippet to start. Please click through the link that follows the story to read the full article…

Their headlamps flashed against the limestone walls and then suddenly the officers were surrounded. Invisible dogs snarled and barked from all sides. The men’s hearts hammered. They froze in their tracks. They cooed canine comforts into the dark.In time, the officers’ lights found the P.A. system. They found the stereo, with guard-dog yowls burned onto a CD. They found 3,000 square feet of subterranean galleries, strung with lights, wired for phones, live with pirated electricity. The officers uncovered a bar, lounge, workshop, dining corner and small screening area. The cinema’s seats had been carved into the stone itself, with room for 20 people to sit in the cool and chomp on popcorn.On the floor of one cavern, officers discovered an ominous metal container. The object was fat, festooned with wires. The police called in the bomb squad, they evacuated the surface, they asked themselves: What have we found?They had found a couscous maker.A few days after the couscoussière incident, officers returned to the scene. This time they brought agents from Électricité de France. But they were too late. Already someone had undone the galleries’ wiring, disappeared with the equipment, vanished with the booze. What had so recently been a private cinema, a secret hide-out, was now just an empty quarry. The cinema’s makers had left a note. “Ne cherchez pas,” they wrote. “Don’t search.”

    1. Thanks! I am such a sucker for new themes! I really like the new tabbed widget sidebar…
      I’m not too fond of the stock background but I’ll find something to replace it soon.
      I know I will probably never buy a premium theme, as I change my theme far too often. That would cost me a fortune! haha
