Kick him in the box and shove him.

It's funnier if you think of "box" as a women's vagina.

I don't think its such a good idea to have a gimmick when commiting crimes. But thats just my opinion I could be wrong.

"huh? It's just a box"

Is this that "guerilla marketing" I've been hearing so much about?

Two days of the database lost? That was fairly extreme debugging by the sounds of things. You probably shouldnt use a hammer guys. Does Fark hire? Coder here with 10 years experience. Can code Perl if I must.

Well, I guess a non-violent robber is better than a violent one. The Box Bandit had to decide on two courses of actions when he chose to rob stores. I'm just glad he chose the one that involves no threats, violence, bodily harm or murder.

If you know anything about Dallas, what you got was an image of a gay man driving a VW or Volvo.

Police are also on the lookout for his alleged accomplice:

They believe he may answer to the name "Ken".

Man, if I was working at a pizza place and a guy tried to rob me with a box I'd haul his ass over the counter and stuff him in the oven.

This morning I saw that poor fark lost 2 days of data...

And I thought to myself as I looked upon NO links but photoshops...

They have no submissions to green light!

This is my chance, I said to myself!!

1) Quick, find a link and submit it
2) Desperate fark mod green lights it in an effort to fill the front page
3) ?
4) Profit!

And now, I sit here, no longer a fark virgin. And I even have at least one complaint registered on the thread that my headline was lousy!!!

Good day. Good day.

'Squid Bandit' Targeting Orlando Businesses

UPDATED: 11:28 am CDT April 8, 2005

ORLANDO-- A man posing as a SeaWorld employee has robbed a number of Orlando businesses during the past few days. The robber, pretending to be a marine biologist, carries a squid into a business and demands cash from employees.

The Squid Bandit, as investigators call him, robbed a Bank One branch at the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Abrams Road on Wednesday. He approached a teller and handed her a squid, which contained a holdup note.

Investigators said that concealing holdup notes in the squid, the robber can appear to patrons to be conducting legitimate business.

Sunday, the bandit hit a CiCi's Pizza located on Samuel Boulevard, near the Compass Bank location, according to police. The restaurant was busy with customers, and the cashier he approached was caught off guard by reading the note's message, which had instructions to fill the squid with large-denomination bills.

"She started backing up, and he goes, 'Don't be nervous, just relax, be calm and put the money in the (squid),' " Terry Ivie, CiCi's general manager, said. "Basically, we had some guests that were walking in, and he just turned around and ran out the store."

Investigators said the Squid Bandit has not indicated that he was carrying a vertebrate, but he still is considered to be dangerous.
