Stolen Clock Hands Heading to Pope?

Trio takes credit for stealing from Georgetown's Healy Hall

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.
