On Mardi Gras morning officials at Loyola University in New Orleans found that the first four letters that spell out the school's name on its front lawn, L-O-Y-O, were missing, local TV station WDSU reported.

Officials told the news station they were a "victim of Mardi Gras" and offered few other details.

But apparently it's not a unique prank. Loyola University officials keep extra concrete letters around in case of such an act of vandalism occurs -- which is pretty frequently -- and expect to quickly replace the missing letters, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
