I would've tested it out in the ladies' room first.

He is invisible. But only when no one is looking.

Waiting for decapitatilarity to ensue.

Maybe he's only invisible when people aren't looking.

He should have a meeting with a certain emperor about invisible stuff.

What is the world coming to?
You can't even trust sorcerers anymore.

I am so glad I'm American, and therefore not stupid about anything.

I would have tested it out on an elevator.

Dangit...knew I shouldn't have bothered to look for a picture. I tip my hat to I_C_Weener.

Does this mean that the shoveler can't shovel either?

'I made a mistake. I understand now what a big trick was played on me,' the man told the court, state-run newspaper Jam-e Jam reports.

Grandmaster Mel-e Mel must be the editor-in-chief.

The state-run newspaper is called Jam-E-Jam?!?! I didn't realize the Iranian government press had a sense of humor.
 
2006-11-06 02:25:20 PM  
you just can't trust sorcerors like you used to
 
2006-11-06 02:25:30 PM  
That's it, I'm buying a wizard's hat and preying on the criminal element. That is my new goal in life: to copy this guy's pure genius.

/hero tag when he's caught
//assuming he hasn't turned himself invisible with the real spell...

"Not only that, if you strap this bomb to you and set it off in a group of people - hopefully western zionist infidels - you will be at the table of Muhammad with 40 virgins" *chuckle*

Fark really needs a "priceless" tag.

You'd think a simple glance in a mirror would dispell that notion.

Or how about just walking up to a random guy on the street and saying, "Pardon me, but do you have any Grey Poupon?" If they don't look around trying to figure out who is talking to them, then it's a safe bet you're visible.

/5 points for the reference.

Sounds like a 1980's Miami radio station.

I wonder, seriously, has this guy ever visited img.fark.com? Cause that might explain a lot.

jcaustin wins the thread.

But seriously, these people are one of the greatest threats to our national security?

I'm just surprised that this wasn't in Florida.
 
2006-11-06 02:32:40 PM  
You'd think someone would at least superficially test such a ridiculous claim first before diving headlong into bank and snatching cash out of people's hands. I mean, gullibility is one thing, but didn't he even realize he could still see himself? Did he even run his new powers by a mirror? Piece of reflective metal? Bystander? Dog? Spider? Anything?

/...sigh..

This guy is way too entertaining to be sent to prison. He should be sentenced to star in a reality show.

/ was I_C Weener's reference to Amazon Women on the Moon? Because I was going to post something from the invisible man sketch, but didn't want to be derivative.

// "On no, 'ere comes the invisible man again."

/// derivative

If it were me, I would welcome prison instead

Well done, jcaustin! Probably the first and last time I'll see an Erik reference on Fark.
 
2006-11-06 02:46:04 PM  
Did you snarks ever consider he's mentally ill?

If they do, you're either invisible or a midget.

chaddsfarkprefect: Did you snarks ever consider he's mentally ill?

He tried to rob a bank. At that point, I don't care if he's mentally ill. And he did it in a hilarious fashion - people are going to laugh.
 
2006-11-06 03:04:39 PM  
He must not have believed hard enough. Either that or it was simply not the sorcerer's will that he be invisible. After all, it's not like the sorceror is a gumball machine. He won't just do anything you ask him to do.
 
2006-11-06 03:18:18 PM  
Haha, thou can't even cast a level 2 spell correctly. I laugh at thee foul sorcerer.

They will also shoot down your stealth aircraft if you're stupid enough to invade.

There must have been a warlock with his pet felhunter nearby.
 
2006-11-06 03:54:23 PM  
He should've asked the wizard what level he is. He probably got some level 4 n00b who just scratched together enough plat to buy the low level invis, which has a max 18 min duration.
 
2006-11-06 03:58:24 PM  
He must have been a Rashti.

There's a lot of that going on over there. Are you still crazy if everyone else around you is too?
