A clarinet was disassembled and its parts were stolen from a locker room in the 1500 block of North Loomis Street between 3 p.m. on May 6 and 1:30 p.m. on May 7.

The way this is worded just makes me laugh. As if a clarinet wasn’t stolen … just its parts?! ;-)

    Um… if it’s gone, how does anyone know whether it was disassembled first?

    Maybe what they mean by “parts” is that the individual pieces of grenadilla are jumbled forlornly on the floor, all the keys having been removed. Or the reverse.

    Now I’m hearing the old KFC commercial denigrating McDonalds’ Chicken McNuggets, the one with the tagline “Parts is parts!”
