Some frat boys love cock-a-doodle

RiBr1.Em.56 Some FIU frat boys stole a giant Calle Ocho rooster for a football game. And some folks just don't think it's funny. Here's our columnist, Fabiola Santiago, on the cock theft:

Maybe the Little Havana Rooster Caper is a small peccadillo in the grand scheme of wrongs.

“I think it’s pretty hilarious! It reminds me of the pranksters who stole the baby Jesus from some nativity scene and traveled all over the place, photographing the little baby all over the world. They returned it with a note,” says a friend who is a Florida International University alumna. “I say no harm, no fowl — pardon the pun!”

But as harmless as the theft now seems to those of us who remember youthful impulse and college pranks, the episode merits a bit of serious community introspection. It says plenty about how we do business in the City of Miami and about our prejudices and quickness to judge.

Why is this still in the news? It was done in good fun, and returned to the rightful owner. The owner decided to cut a deal with the boys... he wouldn't reveal their identities if they performed X amount of hours of community service.

Good to know some uptight prick doesn't find it funny.
