You’ve heard the stories. Jesus’ face appears on a woman’s toast and sells on eBay for ten grand! How about finding an angel that washed up on the beach? Except it wasn’t an angel, unfortunately. Villagers in Indonesia thought they had been blessed by a fallen angel when they came across a beautiful doll. Pardin, a villager who goes by a single name, found the heavenly being while fishing. Except, it wasn’t an angel at all—it was a sex doll!

It was the day after the solar eclipse, a very spiritual time for the country, which prompted locals to believe that the events were somehow linked. Pardin rescued the doll and took it home to his village, where it was treated with great respect. His mother dressed it up in pretty clothes and even gave it a Muslim headscarf to wear. Locals became increasingly curious about the “angel,” so police investigated, fearing unrest from the villagers.

Police officer Heru Pramukarno explained,”We were hearing many stories, such as that the ‘fallen angel’ was crying when she was discovered. When our officers arrived they saw that the ‘fallen angel’ was just a doll, it was a sex toy.”

He continued, saying, “The problem, it seemed, was the remoteness of Kalupapi. They have no Internet, they don’t know what a sex toy is.”

After they officers investigated the situation, they confiscated the doll and took it back to the station in an attempt to end the endless rumors. Goes to show you there are still places on this earth that are still innocent.
