(Newser) – The nation’s newest folk hero? According to Gawker, it’s a former Yale student and current DJ/musician who calls himself PAZ … and who recently crashed Paris Hilton’s swanky 30th birthday party and stole her $2,000 cake. On his website, PAZ explains how it happened—it was his friend’s idea, and all he needed was a wristband with a “P” on it to get in—and offers up the pictures to prove it. Why did he steal the cake? Because there were two, and he was told by the waitstaff that one would probably just get thrown out. (The one that got eaten? Shaped like a giant shoebox.)

So, in PAZ’s words: "In one fluid motion, I sidestep a confused waiter, seize the prize, and about-face to the door. I pass the security chief again on the way out. I nod purposefully. He nods in return. Forty seconds later I'm in the front seat of a Nissan Maxima with 70lbs of awesome in my lap." The cake is big, red, and of course, says “Paris” on it. How does it taste? “F***ing delicious,” he writes. (Need more Paris? Click here.)
