I’ve got a banana and I’m not afraid to use it

One of the things I like about the Sunday papers is the obscure stories that you missed elsewhere. Take today’s Sunday Times, setting aside the man whose wife left him because he has two penises, the oddball of the week was a bloke called Robert Downey who tried to rob a bookies shop using a banana as an imitation handgun.

He didn’t get very far because the counter staff could see it was a piece of fruit and they just ignored him. He was eventually caught and sent to trial and got a custodial of nearly seven years. Whether this was for the crime of attempted robbery or blatant stupidity, it doesn’t say.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
