A $1000 reward is being offered in San Diego for a man who tried to rob a 7-11 on Labor Day while dressed in a Gumby costume. But he fumbled trying to pull what he said was a gun out of his costume. He got flustered, dropped 26 cents on the floor and fled empty-handed. He also had an accomplice who police are still trying to identify. Apparently the clerk isn’t too up on his cartoon characters; he described the assailant to his boss as “a green Spongebob Squarepants”.
- If it had been Spongebob he would have pulled out a spatula. (Don’t ask me how I know this, but Spongebob is actually a Fry-Cook!)
- This guys not “Gumby”… he’s “Dumby”!
- He’s one of the first criminals in history to actually lose money during a robbery.
