Bearded Lady Espresso Bandit

Posted by on January 5 at 11:52 AM

This New York Times article about robberies at Washington State espresso stands is hilarious:

The police said the bearded person was actually a woman, Lindsey Nicole Pruitt, 22, of Enid, Okla., who was arrested while wearing a glued-on goatee and who had a fake gun, described as a realistic replica of a Beretta 9 millimeter, stuffed in her waistband. Ms. Pruitt was charged with robbery in connection with a holdup at the Java the Hut in Pacific, Wash., the police said, and was being held on $70,000 bail in neighboring Pierce County.

Ah, Enid, OK. Ah, glued-on goatees. Bank robbers are never this goofy.

"java the hut"

In other news there is an ad for a Gas Huffer show in the left margin. WTF? Seriously? I haven't heard of those guys since like junior high. Right on!
