    Des Moines thieves return mannequin arm

    I know there are a few Deadspin fans on here but I saw this story today and had a good laugh. Apparently a few Des Moines residents stole the arm off a mannequin at a popular bar in San Francisco a few years back and recnetly returned it with a number of pictures and a note detailing its travels in the midwest.

    I like this story because the perpetrators returned the arm and made it a great story. Anyone pull any similarly mostly harmless shenanigans where everyone won in the end?

    They interviewed the owner of the Lefty's on NPR this afternoon I LMAO when I heard the story. The owner actually thought it was funny.

    Did one of you steal lefty's arm?

    You can admit it. Looks like the arm had extensive excursions in DSM. Wonder if it met Cy?

    Smacking your mom on the *** and running upstairs is not considered a "hit and run".
