Come, Join My Secret Underground Cultural Restoration Society

Headline: Undercover restorers fix Paris landmark’s clock.

Setup:

Four members of an underground “cultural guerrilla” movement known as the Untergunther, whose purpose is to restore France’s cultural heritage, were cleared on Friday of breaking into the 18th-century monument in a plot worthy of Dan Brown or Umberto Eco.

“The Untergunther”! I could not possibly love this more.
