Yale President defends keeping stolen sculpture in Connecticut

In 1911 Machu Picchu was moved piece by piece to Yale University in New Haven, CT. Hiram Bingham packed and shipped the oldest Incan treasures of Peru to his alma mater.

Yale, the only university to be founded with money from a lock company, has recently agreed to return the invaluables to Peru until they learned that the shipment had to include more than just broken potshards.

Yale conservator of ancient stolen treasure, Dr Steele Coolstuf explained that his Ivy League of Extraordinary Gentle preservation could keep all of the Incan booty good as new: "If we return the treasure trove to the Andes it will probably just turn to dust. In its new haven at then Yale lock box it at least has a chance of lasting a long, long time..."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
