Love may be in store for prankster

MYSTERY surrounds the identity of the lovestruck prankster who apparently scaled the roof of this furniture shop to search for his would-be Valentine.
Workers at the Des Kelly outlet on Whitworth Road in Drumcondra, Dublin, deny any knowledge of the person responsible for the banner which appeared above their storefront overnight on Tuesday.
"We've been asking around all day and we don't know if it's legit," a worker told the Irish Independent yesterday.
It's not clear whether the smitten tyre-changer is looking for a woman wearing a blue mini-skirt, or driving a blue Mini. But callers to the mobile phone number are treated to a karaoke version of Carole King's hit 'You've Got a Friend'.
Locals suspect the unusual advertisement was a publicity stunt.
