The Palo Alto Daily News reports that it ran a classified ad from a prankster known for placing humorous ads in papers around the country. The ad said: "Found: Tom Cruise's Lhasa Apso & heart-shaped bed." It ran Wednesday in the paper's free "found" classified section. "If I have to pay for it, I don't really consider it a hoax," said prankster Rory Emerald, a Los Angeles collage and oil painting artist who has placed 60 to 80 such ads in papers over the years.
