So, what are you in for?

Who says there’s nothing good in the newspaper? Or in this case the “online newspaper”. I was goofing off on the Statesman’s website and guess what I found: 1 of 2 thong-facemask robbery suspects sentenced. NOT A JOKE! These guys actually (kind of hilariously) robbed a store with women’s thongs on their faces. You know, as a disguise. I like to think it went down like this:

Robber #1: You know, our usual getups are so uncomfortable and frumpy. I’m tired of putting pantyhose over my head and my ski mask’s in the wash! What to do?
Robber #2: Want to try boxer-briefs?
Robber #1: No, man, how are we supposed to see?
Robber #2: We could try some sheer lingerie? Or something lacy?
Robber #1: I’ve got it: THONGS!
Robber #2: Oh dude that’s perfect! You wear blue, I’ll wear green!

And the rest is history. I wish I could find a surveillance photo so I could put it on Failblog. It’s probably best that they’re getting locked up; these guys were due for a Darwin Award.
