Could Georgetown University's stolen clock hands be on their way to the Pope?

The hands disappeared early Monday morning from Healy Hall. Now someone has emailed a Georgetown student magazine to take credit.

In the email published on Vox Populi, a blog run by the staff of the Georgetown Voice, a trio named "Reaper, Goliath and Juliet" claim they swiped the clock hands and then sent them to Vatican City "to receive the blessing of Pope Benedict XVI."

The email included a picture of two gold clock hands, perhaps as proof of the theft.

The Healy clock hands are a popular target for pranks and were last stolen in 2005. In that case, the thieves were a couple of students.
