That’s not a robbery, this is a robbery!

croc-dundee.jpgIn Australia, a judge recently referred to a pair of thieves as “the keystone robbers,” on account of their big heist going stupidly awry. Seems that Donna Hays and Benjamin Jorgensen were hoping to score $30,000 last April when they robbed a Melbourne restaurant. But — whoops — instead they wound up with a bag of rolls. Then, to make matters worse, Benjamin accidentally shot Donna in the hip, putting her in the hospital for four weeks.

And then, there’s the double-irony in the story: the name of the restaurant they stole the rolls from was the Cuckoo Restaurant, and the botched robbery actually took place on April Fool’s Day.

I'd just like to put in my (completely irrelevant) 2c by saying that i work only a couple of kilometres from the cuckoo, and i remember when this happened. YAY!
