Wow. Lame prank. A man posing as a member of Bob Dylan's road crew — wearing a Dylan backstage pass after Bobby Z. played a show at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst — ordered 178 pizzas from Antonio's Pizza in the college town and said he'd pick them up later to deliver to the singer and his entourage.

Workers stayed until 5 a.m. to finish the order, and the New Jersey man never showed. The unidentified prankster, through his lawyer, later agreed to pay the $4,000 tab.

I'm happy to say that I've never pulled a prank on a pizzeria, though it sadly is a common enough occurrence.
