Too funny!

Although, I would have liked to see him in a tiki mask with the palm frond. That would have sealed the deal in my book.

Um don't you usually want to use a something that could do some bodily harm to the person when you rob a place. Guy must be high on crack.

Here's a the story...

DELAND -- A bandit got away empty-handed after trying to rob a Volusia County convenience store with a palm frond.

Investigators said Gelando Olivieri, 33, went to V&F Discount Beverage on Voorhis Avenue and then threatened to stab the clerk with the frond if he didn't hand over money.

Another worker then helped push Olivieri out of the store. He recognized the man and led police right to him.

Olivieri is now charged with armed robbery.

Police believe he is a transient.

Ha ha! Yeah...how could you take that guy seriously?

"Um....sorry sir, we only have $49.97. You'll have to leave."

How the hell did they recognize the guy amongst all the other guys in giant striped rugby shirts and plaid shorts?
