Cream Pies Wanted
A gang of “anarchists” impressed with their own wittiness has been robbing restaurants in Germany:
It sounds like upscale eating places should keep a supply of cream pies and banana peels on hand for a counterattack. I suspect this could be stopped by just one store making a determined resistance.
A GANG of anarchist Robin Hood-style thieves, who dress as superheroes and steal expensive food from exclusive restaurants and delicatessens to give to the poor, are being hunted by police in the German city of Hamburg.
The gang members seemingly take delight in injecting humour into their raids, which rely on sheer numbers and the confusion caused by their presence. After they plundered Kobe beef fillets, champagne and smoked salmon from a gourmet store on the exclusive Elbastrasse, they presented the cashier with a bouquet of flowers before making their getaway.
Hmmm… Bullying behavior, unfunny jokes, a self-image as defenders of the downtrodden … Does Stephen Colbert have anything to do with this?
