Actually, when I was going to college, one of the pot dealers in the neighborhood had a business card, "Diamond Delivery Service."

Kinda sounds like the plot of Half-Baked, with the business cards and free samples.

At first I was amazed that this wasn't in Politics Talk.

Then I clicked the link and saw it had nothing to do with the President.

There were some armed robbers who tried to rob the drive through teller at my bank.

The tellers hit the floor and called the police.

I can understand going IN to rob a bank, but it today's day and age how in the world can someone drive up to a bank and try this?

A fellow tried to rob the drive-up teller by threatening to put a hand grenade in the chute. They just turned off the chute.

I always liked the guy from "America's Dumbest Criminals" or whatever that show was, who tried to rob a Radio Shack. He decided to defeat the security cameras by wearing a paper bag over his head. He also neglected to cut any eyeholes in the bag. There's great security footage of him walking around bumping into stuff and falling down.

It's been a while since I saw it but:
My favorite is the guy that tried to rob a KFC, all caught on tape of course. I think he held them up with a golf club. The cashier wouldn't open the drawer so he hopped over the counter to do it himself. While he was collecting the goods(back to the kitchen), two fry cooks dumped a 10-20 gallon pot of hot fry oil on him. He dropped all the money, stumbled back over the counter and took off.

For those that haven't worked a restaurant kitchen, the fryers are typically around 350-425 degrees. That guy was in for a world of hurt for the next few weeks.

I'm surprised he didn't sue KFC.
