About 100 brains are missing from a collection at the University of Texas at Austin, CBS News and the Associated Press report.

The story reports: “It remains unclear who took the brains preserved in jars of formaldehyde and whether this was a harmless prank or theft.

” ‘We think somebody may have taken the brains, but we don’t know at all for sure,’ psychology Professor Tim Schallert, co-curator of the collection, told the Austin American-Statesman.

“His co-curator, psychology Professor Lawrence Cormack, said, ‘It’s entirely possible word got around among undergraduates and people started swiping them for living rooms or Halloween pranks.’ ”

The university said in a statement that it will investigate, the story added.

Hmm. No one asked us here at TVWeek, but we think Otter, Flounder, Pinto and Bluto should be brought in for questioning.
