Hey guys, if you're going to steal a Banksy, at least make sure it is a Banksy.

Anyone remember the original Banksy work which was stolen from a wall in Folkestone, England, and then appeared at auction in New York, before a judge ordered it to be returned?

Apparently a couple of drunk guys did, because when they saw this stencil piece in the same town they thought they'd hit the jackpot and tried to steal it. Despire the fact that it's a different image, signed by a different artist. And they were too drunk to steal it properly anyway, because they got halfway down the street then dropped it and ran off. One of the guys then got busted form drunk driving.

Worst art thieves ever. I'm guessing this isn't the plot for Ocean's 14.
