Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Liesa Healy of Boston, Massachusetts who passed along today’s story via the internet. From New York City comes the story of Bozo art lover Frank Santini. It seems our bozo swiped five antique silk prints enclosed in glass from an airline lounge at Kennedy Airport in New York. The prints, owned by Alitalia Airlines, and valued at $5 million, had been on display in the airline’s first class lounge and had been taken down because the airline was moving to the other side of the terminal. Our bozo claimed he thought the airline was throwing the prints away, so he took them home to hang in his apartment. And how was he caught? When he grabbed the paintings, he dropped his dental appointment card, complete with his name and phone number.
