Man to Pay Up After Prank-Ordering 178 'Bob Dylan' Pizzas

You know what's funny? Ordering 178 pizzas, saying they're for Bob Dylan, and then never picking them up. Or wait, that's actually not funny at all, as a Massachusetts prankster who did just that recently found out when he was ordered to pay Antonio's in Amherst back. The pizzas cost about $4,000, but it's unclear how much of that will be repaid.

The man had shown employees a backstage pass from a Dylan concert in town that night and claimed the pies were for the musician's stage crew. Employees stayed at the restaurant until about 5:30 AM making the pizzas, most of which were thrown out. The original report of the prank from the local news is below.
