the story's a couple months old, but I thought it was really interesting:

HARWICH, Mass. — Harwich police have a musical mystery on their hands: Who left a piano in the middle of the woods? And why? The Baldwin piano discovered in the Bells Neck woods appears to be in perfect working condition and had a matching bench as if it had recently been played.

The piano was discovered Saturday by a woman walking along a path inside a conservation area at the woods.

Another question police would like to answer is how the piano got to such a remote location. The piano is heavy and it took more than a half dozen men to load it onto a truck to remove it.

Police said they've notified other police departments in the area to see if anyone has reported a missing piano.


Theories on how and why it was there? I think it's mystifying, almost romantic

Old.
I think this was posted here once too...
(It is a pretty crazy story though.)

This is a clever, witty signature. Rofl at my glory.

Probably a practical joke or something.

Most likely - and believe me with this - an overly romantic soon-to-be-husband hired a pianist to play "thier song" for his soon-to-be-wife at the location of their first kiss as teenagers while he did the whole one knee business. She said yes, and all was grand.

Unfortunetely, the piano had become lodged down the bottom of a hill.

The man, the fiance and the pianist were unable to get it out, so the man, obviously rich enough to convince a pianist to move his piano there in the first place, and still obviously reeling from the high that he's going to be a husband, offered to buy the pianist a new piano and basically forget about the old one, as it wasn't worth the trouble.

Someone looking for an album cover. Note how the piano was set up like it had been recently played? It's going on the next surprise Green Day album. Then this will be a story we loathe.

Yogi the bear is training to be a concert pianist.

Until you savages took his piano. Now he hides in the forest, receive training by a ninja in the secret arts of swiping picknick baskets in urban settings until one day... he will get his revenge.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

It's obviously insurance fraud, which is a serious crime that shouldn't be joked about.

I thought the episode of the Simpsons was pretty funny where Homer 'stole' Moe's car so he'd get his insurance money for it.

I love that episode

Especially when homer is driving the car down a cliff, halfway down he jumps out of the car, rolls a couple times then hits a rock and accidentally tumble in into the car again

if its too big to move, someone must have carved it out of a tree right in the middle of the woods. its the only logical explanation.
