Gee, that certainly explains it!

Folks in Plouneventer, France, were perplexed on Oct. 11 when they woke up to find a van perched atop a bus stop shelter, Oddity Central reported.

Police were summoned, the van was removed and the owner identified -- but the mystery remained, with theories involving alcohol and performance art.

Finally, three days later, the truth came out: The prank was part of a "commercial dispute" between the van's owner and the perpetrator, who used a pallet truck to hoist the car onto the bus shelter.

The latter may face charges of endangerment. [Oddity Central, 10/15/2021]
