You CAN'T Make This Stuff Up

This did NOT happen here, but I found the story in our local newspaper.  I will put up the story with no comments--and you can come up with your own jokes.  ;)

NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP)--A 50-foot-long bridge in western Pennsylvania has been stolen, and its owners say they're baffled by the crime and have no idea who took it.
New Castle Development spokesman Gary Bruce said Friday that he "couldn't believe it when they told me it was gone."
A state police report says the 20-foot-wide span in North Beaver Township went missing between Sept. 27 and Wednesday.

I also thought of the "Have I got a bridge to sell you." scam when I read this. :D The craziness.

I saw that in the newspaper yesterday. Gotta admire the guts of people who think of things like that. I hope it was a bridge that wasn't used anymore.

From what I understand, it was the back-entry road onto a company's property, so it wasn't used all that often. It still makes me chuckle when I think about it.
