A misunderstanding of the greatest giggles.

Brilio.net - FIshermen in Banggai had quite an interesting discovery by the bay in their native Sulawesi, an island in Northern Indonesia back in March. They found a doll floating in the water, and promptly took it as a sign from the gods and deemed the plastic doll an angel.

"This angel child also was found face down, crying and naked covered only a white cloth,” Pojok Satu, the local newspaper wrote of the doll. The fishermen and his family began taking care of the doll, and changing her clothes daily and dressing her demurely with a hijab.

As the picture went viral on social media, so did the rumours. It was believed by many that the doll was found in tears, which caused the local police to do some investigation before the story got too out of hand. 

The cops found an angel, but not the of the traditional kind. The doll was in fact a sex doll!

According to the local police, this story kind of makes sense. The rural aspect of the location of this story adds some necessary credentials. Many people in rural Indonesia are superstitious and believe in the “bidadari”, a type of angel or spirit. Adding zest to the superstitions was the fact that the doll was found one day after the solar eclipse, adding some mystique to the finding and some weight to the doll’s credentials as an angel.

“They have no internet, they don’t know what a sex toy is,” the police chief was quoted as saying by AFP news agency. The kalupapi regency in `central Sulawesi is remote, and the fishermen spend more time in the outdoors then they do on Pornhub.

While there wasn’t any divine intervention, this story sure does make for some good laughs.
