Heart Stolen

This gives new meaning to what it means to have your heart stolen:
The heart of a revered 19th century Argentine friar and patriot was stolen from an urn in the Franciscan monastery where it was kept for years as a religious relic, a church official said.

Whoever scooped up friar Mamerto Esquiu's heart on Tuesday left the urn it was stored in behind, said Jorge Martinez, head of the San Francisco monastery in the northwestern province of Catamarca.

Although this is not really a laughing matter...I just can't resist "biting"...

I hope authorities are questioning the Tin Man!

Tony Bennett left his heart in San Fransisco too--maybe he was there searching for his and took the friar's as a replacement.
