Hell’s Bells

The Thieves Were On Their Metal

Police in Hungary are looking for thieves who made off with a 300-kilogram (660-pound) stone copper bell from the top of a church tower. Local priest Father Peter Bottyan only realised it had gone when he went to ring it one morning. Police said: "It would have taken a crane and dozens of men to get that down."

FOOTNOTE: Bats in the bell free.

That is an amazing sleight of hand. If the thieves are ever caught I'm sure the cops would stop to ask "so, how DID you do that?"
